In an interview with the Associated Press on Friday, President Trump said his tax reform package would be unveiled “Wednesday or shortly thereafter” and it will include a “massive tax cut.” He went on to say it will be “bigger than, I believe, any tax cut ever.”
Surely, if this is the case Trump’s popularity would sky rocket. It would be a great move to come before hi 100th day in office, which will be April 29. However, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin had set a goal of passing tax reform by August, but unfortunately the deadline was delayed due to the struggles over the repeal of Obamacare.
Before any tax reform can pass, the government must stay open. Lawmakers are to return to Washington on Tuesday to pass legislation to keep the government funded and open. Current spending expires at midnight on April 28, and Republicans have said they plan to attempt to pass a health care overhaul next week.
We are looking at a fast paced and explosive week coming up…in more ways than one.
Trump said on Thursday he was optimistic about the “very, very good” agreement that looked to be coming together between congressional conservatives and moderates on repealing Obamacare. He further added he did not think it would interfere in the passing a spending bill.
I pray President Trump is correct in what he is saying. Put on your seat belt, and hang on for the ride of your life, America. Next week will be it!
