Democrats have decided to back away from a push to reverse President Trump’s tax cuts. The legislation is something that will be viewed as a legacy moment for President Trump.
According to The Hill:
Democrats are backing away from vows to reverse President Trump’s tax cuts if they take control of the Senate and White House.
Senate Democrats had suggested they could move quickly on the issue, but now say they are likely to delay stand-alone tax legislation if Democratic nominee Joe Biden is elected president and their party controls the House and Senate.
Instead, the priority will be on spending to create jobs and raise wages, investments in green technology and infrastructure and a national plan to contain the coronavirus pandemic.
Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), a member of the Senate Finance Committee and one of Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer’s (D-N.Y.) closest allies, said she has “no idea” when Democrats would move a tax package next year if they win control of the White House and the Senate.
It seems like that decided to back away because the polling numbers on the issue look unfavorable to them.
