U.S. Tax Reforms That Can Drive Trump's Tax Cuts

Updated on

President Donald Trump met Tuesday with a bipartisan group of House Ways and Means Committee members, the day before he heads to Indiana to help unveil what he called a “very comprehensive, very detailed” framework for tax legislation.

Before the meeting, Trump said the plan, which has been kept under tight wraps by congressional leaders and White House officials, will simplify taxes, increase the child tax credit and cut taxes for the middle class “tremendously.” Democrats have questioned whether the plan’s details -- based on leaks that surfaced over the past week -- will ultimately benefit top earners the most.
