This week, Democrats on the House Ways and Means Committee voted in favor of dozens of proposed tax changes. Some are tax hikes that would bring in more than $2 trillion in revenue to help fund the party’s priorities.
The final form of the bill and the fate of specific provisions are far from clear. Democrats have a slim majority in the House and a leaner majority in the Senate, while Republicans are almost unanimously against the changes. There could be more bickering on the House floor, and then the Senate will have its chance.
