Trump Says Team Working on Tax Cut for Middle-Income Earners

Over the weekend, President Trump teased that a fresh new round of tax cuts are in the works and could be revealed before November.

No Democrats supported last year's tax Bill, and they have been critical of plans for second round of tax cuts since they were first discussed by Republicans. It has increased in popularity, with the GOP taking the reins on trust in handling the economy.

Heller accused her of making a visit to see separated families at the U.S. -Mexico border in order to stage a "photo-op, " while she described Heller a "rubber-stamp" for Trump, whose tax plan she said benefits the wealthy at the expense of the middle class.

With the deficit already climbing toward $1 trillion, it would be extremely hard to get any kind of tax cut through a lame duck House, much less the Senate, before the end of the year.

President Donald Trump is headed to Nevada on Saturday to cap off a three-day tour of Western states in an effort to galvanize voters ahead of next month's midterm elections.

Minimally vulnerable: a House Republican represents a district that voted between 55-60% for President Trump in 2016 - except under extraordinary circumstances, the assumption here is that even if the Republican candidate is weak, there are more than enough "Republicans to spare". But among likely voters-instead of the larger group of registered voters-Trump's job rating drops to 45% approve, 52% disapprove.

The NBC News-Wall Street Journal poll released Sunday shows 48 percent of registered voters would prefer having the Democrats in control of Congress, compared to 41 percent supporting the GOP. Has a surge of post-Kavanaugh enthusiasm for Republicans turned back the Democrats' momentum?

Which is why the message that resonates most strongly by far with persuadable voters is a Republican promise that they will make permanent last year's middle-class tax cuts.

"Kevin Brady is working on it, Paul Ryan is working, we're all working on it".

Likewise, Republicans have an opportunity in highlighting the left's more doolally ideas.

"Democrats believe our country should be a giant sanctuary city for criminal aliens", he said, while "Republicans believe our country should be a sanctuary for law abiding Americans". It seemed reminiscent of the time a year ago when Trump cracked open the door of bipartisanship with those leaders, who emerged from a White House meeting to say Trump had agreed to work toward a deal on protection young immigrants.
