Trump approval rating depends on which poll you look at

Donald Trump

Just 38% of registered voters said they would vote for Republican House candidates, while 52% said they'd vote for Democrats.

With an eye toward November's midterm elections, House Republicans on Monday unveiled legislation to make permanent the individual tax cuts and pass-through business deductions that were set to expire in 2026 as part of the sweeping tax rewrite enacted late a year ago.

Much of the economic boost from the 2017 law was tied to the reduction in the corporate rate and other business-focused provisions, he said.

WASHINGTON-Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives plan to unveil another round of tax cuts this week, hoping to draw a sharp contrast between themselves and Democrats ahead of the November 6 congressional elections.

President Donald Trump has reportedly woken up to the possibility of being ousted from office by angry Democrats, and thinks he can play the situation towards a big reelection in 2020.

As House Republicans unveil a plan to lock in individuals' tax rate, the Trump administration has touted the positive effects of the initial round of tax cuts, with the latest data showing that July job openings hit a record 6.9 million. In the last three midterm elections - 2006, 2010, and 2014 - the party in the White House saw massive losses in Congress.

The news site said Trump thinks he can win that argument.

The new tax law enacted in December provides steep tax cuts for corporations and the wealthiest Americans, and more modest reductions for middle- and low-income individuals and families. "Shipwreck" is the word used by a party operative talking to the Post.

Still, some Republicans from Democratic-leaning states worry that constituents already dislike December's cap on the federal deduction for state and local tax payments, known as SALT. The provisions include the so-called SALT deduction cap, which is unpopular in high-tax states such as NY and New Jersey. "That's why a mix of making old stuff permanent and also pushing new good things is smart". Some 57% preferred Republican control of Congress, while one-quarter wanted a Democratic-led Congress.

If that happens, it would be the first time since 2012 the USA economy would have to support such a large deficit, highlighting a basic shift for the Republican Party, which once prided itself on fiscal conservatism.
