PBS NewsHour: Who really benefits from GOP’s tax overhaul is battle point as House passes its bill

It’s a big step for Republicans’ tax overhaul plans: the House voted 227 to 205 to pass its version of the bill. While a new analysis suggests that the plans would increase taxes for middle and lower-income Americans, Republicans exuberantly deny that idea. Lisa Desjardins reports and Judy Woodruff gets perspectives from Rep. Kevin Brady, R-Texas, and Rep. Lloyd Doggett, D-Texas.

Thank you, for the encouragement and support, especially throughout these recent weeks. The low turnout does signal how much work remains to ensure Democratic victories in the General Election in November.

There are no unimportant elections and no unimportant races. From the courthouse to the statehouse to the Congress, I will be working for Democratic victories.
