This week Democrats on the House Ways and Means Committee voted to advance dozens of proposed tax changes. Some are tax increases that would raise more than $2 trillion of revenue to help fund the party’s priorities.
The final shape of the bill and the fate of specific provisions are far from clear. Democrats have a slim majority in the House and a slimmer one in the Senate, while Republicans are almost uniformly opposed to the changes. Further wrangling could come on the House floor, and then the Senate gets its shot.
