Electric vehicle tax credit preserved in Senate's revised tax bill, says senator

Calif. Rep. Issa a 'No' on Tax Bill: 'We Can Do Better Than This'

Yet as the Senate Finance Committee unveiled its bill, a few stark differences emerged with the version approved by the House tax-writing committee, underscoring the challenges ahead in getting both chambers to agree on the complex and far-reaching legislation that would affect almost every American.

Republicans can lose only two votes in the Senate to secure the majority needed to pass the tax bill, unless they can woo some Democrats to vote for it. Keeps the number of individual tax brackets at seven: The Senate bill keeps the same number of brackets as the current code but shifts the income that qualifies for each one others brackets' rates.

It follows the news that electric vehicle buyers got an ally within GOP over repeal of the $7,500 federal tax credit when Republican Senator Dean Heller, who sits on the Senate's finance committee, said that he will fight against the repeal.

As Republican leaders hunted for ways to pay for their tax cuts, Sen. "Very few people would say that state income tax is a loophole". The House version would retain the deduction only for property taxes and cap that at $10,000, drawing opposition from GOP lawmakers from states with high local taxes like NY and New Jersey.

Comic artist Patrick Goddard shared an early drawing he did of the costume, which he shared with the Doctor Who costume designer. Some quick background information: William Hartnell was the first man to play The Doctor when the series premiered in 1963.

The Senate plan would be more generous than the House, however, on the mortgage interest deduction, imposing a cap of $1 million on new homes to qualify compared to the $500,000 set by the House.

House Republicans are trying to figure out how to fill a $74 billion hole on Thursday as they make last-minute edits to their sweeping tax overhaul legislation, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA).

The House Ways and Means Committee is expected to approve that tax bill within the next several days, paving the way for a full House vote as early as next week. Increases child care tax credit: The credit per child is $1,650 in the Senate plan, above the current $1,000 credit and the $1,600 credit in the House GOP bill. But those rules also require that the bill not raise the deficit by more than $1.5 trillion, leaving lawmakers scrapping for revenue to offset cuts.

Democrats are strongly opposed to the GOP rewrite, so the Republicans must find agreement among themselves to have any hope of passage.

The exercise announcement comes as President Donald Trump arrived in China to discuss North Korea's nuclear and missile program. It also reiterates the president's desire for Congress to pass $1.6 billion in funding for a wall on the border with Mexico.

"I think that we can do better than this", Issa told the L.A. Times.

It's still a not a done deal and there's just so much stuff in this bill that it sounds like whatever happens with the EV tax credit is just going to be collateral damage. That process allows Senate Republicans to pass the bill on a party-line vote and avoid a Democratic filibuster.

Senate Finance Committee aides told The Washington Post that they would need to make adjustments to the legislation because it doesn't now meet the requirement that it not add to the debt after 10 years.

The House and Senate bills are broadly similar in their general outlines.
