Would the GOP's tax plan benefit the middle class?

Hosted by

In an impromptu news conference on the White House lawn today, President Trump talked about an executive order on healthcare he might sign next week. He said tax reform — next up on the GOP agenda -- won't be a giveaway to the wealthy. He told reporters that, "My plan is for the working people and my plan is for jobs… I don't benefit. I don't benefit, in fact very strongly as you see, I think there's very little benefit for people of wealth." Ben Brody, who covers lobbying and government ethics for Bloomberg, says despite the release of few details, the plan has generated quick response from business interests, organized labor and Democrats.
