Not on same page, House GOP stalls release of tax bill

The bill had originally been scheduled to be unveiled Wednesday. But speculation over a delay was rampant on Capitol Hill on Tuesday night, with representatives of House leaders pointing to the Ways and Means Committee for any final decision or announcement.

“In consultation with President Trump and our leadership team, we have decided to release the bill text on Thursday,” said Kevin Brady, R-Texas, the committee’s chairman. “We are pleased with the progress we are making and we remain on schedule to take action and approve a bill at our Committee beginning next week.”

Republican members privately aired their frustration with a process that they feel cut out of, and some issues were still unresolved hours before the bill had been slated for release.
