7:26 pm
tax bill vastly different to that of the house of representatives resident donald trump wants to sign a tax package into all before the end of the year if the bill passes. is going to convey how tos at the white house for a second but will this tax reform bill get through. well it's certainly looking like it will at least in the house of representatives still there are no guarantees the president heading up to capitol hill for a pep rally of sorts if you will to present the really get make sure there is the momentum behind one of the most sweeping tax reform packages if it is ultimately passed into law that the united states has seen in decades is certainly controversial in terms of its contents many arguing that it rewards people like donald trump and his friends in terms of the wealthiest of americans at the expense of the middle class that he says he was trying to help certainly on the campaign trail others say this could spur on the investment to create the jobs the middle class desperately need still it doesn't appear there is
7:27 pm
a lot of doubt about its passage in the house of representatives the president heading up there to ensure that is the case but that would just be one third of the way it still would have to pass in the senate and that's where it appears to be in a little bit of trouble why is this so important to donald trump. well this is important to donald trump because he has no legislative victory so far he's been in office ten months or nearly ten months and in that time we saw his campaign promise to repeal and replace obamacare fail spectacularly again in the u.s. senate and so this is the concern for this tax reform proposal because in the senate version of the tax reform bill there's something very controversial tucked inside and that is the effort to. get rid of what's known as the individual mandate under obamacare that's the requirement that you must buy health insurance so that is causing some consternation as is the fact that there is a republican very problem prominent republican senator who says he is not going to
7:28 pm
support this version of the bill so the republicans certainly don't have a lot of room to play in terms of votes it may pass in the house it may not pass in the senate and that would be bad for donald trump looking for a legislative victory and really only a few maybe ten legislative days left in the calendar before the end of the year the president looking for a win and that still seems to be in doubt kimmie how can i thank you very much indeed a rare painting byron i saw a small astronaut event she has become the most expensive piece of art ever sold at auction the portraits of jesus christ went for four times its estimated value some experts believe the high selling price is a result of savvy marketing and to no one has. the balls to produce probably not of course to save your previous in the clutches of three kings of england. a treasure of the renaissance and a triumph of capitalism in order to vinci's masterwork salvator monday or savior of
