No tax cut until late 2017 say the senators

PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - When President Donald Trump was elected last November, Republican lawmakers enthusiastically joined his call to rewrite the tax code and dismantle Obamacare in the first 100 days of his presidency.But as congressional Republicans gathered for an annual policy retreat in Philadelphia on Wednesday, the 100-day goal morphed into 200 days. As the week wore on, leaders were saying it could take until the end of 2017 - or possibly longer - for passage of final legislation.Trump had a different idea when he spoke to lawmakers in Philadelphia, telling them: Enough talk. Time to deliver.The divergent views on the timetable were among many indications of tensions that simmered just below the surface at the three-day Republican retreat.
Number one priority, get through the Q1 slowdown.  

It seems Republicans are trying to do something other than run up the deficit and crash the economy. Many of us, like 99%, have never known a Republican do to anything but.
