Senate Republican leaders plan to unveil their tax reform legislation in a closed door meeting with GOP senators Thursday morning, according to Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas.

“We are going to walk through the bill with the Republican conference at 11:30 tomorrow morning, so it will be out there,” Cornyn said after meeting with GOP lawmakers on Wednesday.

The Senate bill, authored by Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, is expected to have significant differences compared to the House tax plan that is now under consideration in the Ways and Means Committee.

Way and Means Chairman Kevin Brady, R-Texas, said his panel would finish marking up the bill Thursday, readying it for floor consideration by next week.

    The tax cut will be a wonderful thing, but the bigger issue is that we are spending too much money. Extreme spending cuts are what we need. Less enabling entitlements, especially for illegal immigrants, people who refuse to work, free phones, sports funding, healthcare, special interests, etc. If the spending is not in the interest of the majority, it should not be implemented.

    Lobbying should be stopped and money payments from lobbiests made illegal.

    Congress should be putting Americans above their own selfish greedy wants, if not then should step down or be fired. All should be drug tested and required to take lie detector tests.

    The Congressional seats should not be giving themselves raises when the minimum wage is $7.75. The Congress needs to be working at least 40 hours per week and get 2 weeks a year for vacation just like the working class.

    I like many Americans am sick sick sick of the DC swamp mentality and actions. That is why we elected Donald J. Trump.

    I hope all the GOP realize that if this does not make an impact on the taxes placed on the middle class you will be doing nothing but giving the public a reason to vote otherwise. We, the middle class, have been paying more than our fare share but even this would not frustrate us as much as all the give a way programs to the NEW AMEICANS. What is the deal with the OLD AMERICANS having to provide sooo much for these new Americans we did not have a chance to vote on?
    I believe we need to help our neighbor but to the extent were the government brings in millions that cant speak or even assimilate to our culture and expect us to take care of and deal with the crimes they perpetrate. We have so many legal problems with these new Americans and we do not have a method of getting them out of our neighborhoods.
    Fix the past mistakes and you will have a place in power for a long time. Screw this up and you will be replaced with the same old crap we have lived with for the last 20 yrs. This is your only chance to make things right again.

      Really? you think we in the middle class pay more than our fair share? Please define “fair share” when the top 10% of wage earners pay OVER 70% of the federal income tax and 45.5 % of households will pay 0 this year. I, like you am middle class but quite honestly, I am tired of hearing about the top earners not paying their “fair share” when the top 1% ( annual gross income of $480,930 about 892,000 Americans ) pay 39% of all federal taxes. Stop with the “fair share” crap.
