Brady said he's confident the House bill would benefit small businesses and spark job growth, noting that the legislation allows for things like immediate expensing, which would allow business owners to write off the total cost of business expenses right away.

Job creators praised the bill for lowering corporate rates permanently and sharply, and for overhauling the global tax system. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act provides needed relief to the middle-class families and small businesses that drive our economy.

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act H.R. 1 is a good jobs creation measure, and a start on tax reform.

"It's been 31 years since the last overhaul of the tax code", Latta said.

Trump announces pick for new Health and Human Services secretary on Twitter
The former Georgia congressman resigned September 29 over a scandal involving his use of private aircraft for government business. But several Democratic lawmakers questioned whether he would tackle changes that cut into pharmaceutical profits.

The bill passed 227-205; thirteen Republicans voted against the bill, and zero Democrats voted for it. "But, as I read it, there is no minimum rate for real business activity overseas".

On Wednesday, Brown pointed to a letter from Congressional Budget Office Director Keith Hall to members of Congress saying the GOP tax plan would cut $25 billion from Medicare. "We know it causes premiums to skyrocket". Its greatest defect is the one that prompted Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3), a leading fiscal conservative to reluctantly vote against it - it does not include spending cuts along with the tax cuts. In North Carolina, we can expect more than 27,000 new jobs as a result of this legislation. This tax plan is also expected to create almost 30,000 new jobs in Georgia alone, while raising the after-tax income for middle-class Georgia families by more than $2,300. "Our plan will also level the playing field internationally so we can bring back jobs and investment".

The House and Senate tax plans have much in common, but there are significant differences as well, any number of which could become flash points when the chambers seek to reconcile their versions of the legislation.
