What it’s like for Americans to watch President Trump’s tax plan in person
As Americans get a glimpse of President Donald Trump’s proposed tax cuts for businesses and households, they’re starting to notice a new twist in how the president and congressional Republicans are approaching their proposal.
Trump is expected to deliver a speech Thursday morning outlining his plan, which is expected not to be the only item he will present to Congress.
It’s likely that the president will unveil his plan at a later date.
It is not clear how many details he will unveil, but it is likely he will include a list of the top tax deductions, as well as some details on the rates he would propose.
The White House said Tuesday that it has not released any details about the proposal, but will be unveiling a tax plan later in the week.
Trump will also unveil a plan for the U.S. Postal Service, which has faced widespread criticism in recent years for underpaying workers.
Trump has proposed eliminating the USPS’s tax on letters and packages and replacing it with a credit for people who have been using a USPS prepaid card.
In addition, the president wants to make the USPS more competitive in the e-commerce marketplace by increasing the percentage of eligible orders it receives.
And he is expected, at some point, to announce that the Postal Service will no longer receive a portion of any subsidies it receives from the federal government, which he has proposed cutting.
For his part, House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., has been pushing hard to sell the plan to lawmakers, but he and his allies have been criticized for not releasing any details on how it will work.
“The president has not yet released any detail on his plan,” Ryan said on Tuesday.
“This is a plan that is being driven by the president, not by the Congress.
The House of Representatives is not going to pass this.”
The plan could be the first major legislative effort from the White House to get a major tax overhaul through Congress.
And it is also the first time the president has put forth his own version of his plan.
The Trump administration has previously tried to pass his own tax plan, called the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which would have cut taxes for corporations, the wealthiest Americans, and people who earn more than $1 million a year.
Trump announced his own plan for tax reform in October 2016, calling it “the Tax Cops’ Way.”
Ryan and his conservative allies, led by House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady, R, Texas, initially backed the plan, but the legislation was pulled from the House floor and never passed.
In his remarks Tuesday, Trump said that the House was still working on his proposal, which will have to be approved by the Senate and signed by the executive branch.
“We have got to get it passed,” Trump said.
“And it will take a lot of work.”
