Trump aims to achieve congressional balancing act on taxes

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump says he wants to lure Democratic lawmakers to sign on to a Republican-crafted tax overhaul plan. But negotiators must deal with the reality that any handouts to Democrats quickly could turn into turn-offs for the GOP.
 
Details of the plan are still taking shape, and Trump is planning to promote it heavily. He's expected to travel to Indiana this coming week, and there's talk off a televised speech.
 
The White House views the planned overhaul as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to simplify the tax system and cut rates.
 
Passage of a tax overhaul would give Trump a much-needed victory as the Republicans continue to struggle to overturn the Obama health law.
