explains how those details may affect your wallet next year... rep kevin brady/-r- texas: i'm very excited about this moment. republican leaders are one step closer to fulfilling a promise of passing tax breaks by christmas.rep kevin brady/- r- texas: americans deserve a new tax code for a new era of american prosperity.what it does - is give corporations a big break - by permanently cutting their tax rates from the current 35 percent - down to 21 percent.you - as an individual taxpayer - will see some benefits too - like a doubling of the standard deduction - though that's set to go away after 8 years.your personal income tax rate may also lower by one or two percent, depending on how much you make. if you have kids, that child tax credit doubles to two thousand dollars. if that credit is more than what you owe in taxes, you get to keep most of that extra money. that refund initially wasn't enough for florida senator marco rubio.sen. marco rubio / -r- florida: i remain surprised that there is not more consensus to support the reality that we need to do more to help working people in this countrybut an increase in the refund brought him on board friday.senator bob corker also made a late decision to say 'yes' - saying it's imperfect, but that we're better off with the bill.pres donaldtrump: "i think it's going to do very, very well. i think that we are going to be in a position to pass
8:31 pm
something as early as next week which will be monumental. - a monumental achievement for republicans who have yet to pass any major bill promised to their voters.but there are senators who have yet to make their decision public - like mike lee, jeff flake - and susan collins.and it's unclear whether the health of senators thad cochran and john mccain will allow them to come to the floor for a vote next week. in washington, i'm natasha chen.
