Tax Plan Offered By Republicans Meets Some GOP Resistance

Published Nov 2, 2017. By Herb Jackson.

House Republicans rolled out a sweeping tax overhaul Thursday and were preparing to bring it up for a vote within weeks, even as some acknowledged their constituents could have to pay more, and some conservative interest groups objected to the cost.


And deficit hawks at the Concord Coalition said the bill was fiscally irresponsible because it would add $1.5 trillion to a national debt that was already due to grow by $10 trillion.

“True tax reform should aim to grow the economy without growing the debt,” said Robert L. Bixby, Concord’s executive director.
