"When we tax ourselves, especially our manufacturing jobs and businesses at much, much higher tax rates than our foreign competitors tax theirs, it's really hard to compete", he said. About one-third of the value of the tax break, which in total is estimated to be $1.3 trillion in savings, is used by filers in these states according to a study by the nonpartisan Center for a Responsible Federal Budget.

If they do jettison or scale back those plans, they will have to either reduce their overall tax goals or make up the money elsewhere.

The House passed Black's resolution on a 219-206 vote.

Sanders' comments came shortly after House Republicans passed a budget resolution, the first step in a process created to trigger a parliamentary maneuver that would allow the Senate GOP majority to avoid a Democratic filibuster and pass a tax bill with 50 votes rather than 60.

Congressional Republicans on Wednesday kicked off debate on House and Senate budget plans that promise slashing cuts to social programs — but whose real goal is to grease the skids for a sweeping overhaul of the USA tax code that would add up to $1.5 trillion to the nation's spiraling debt.

The Senate Budget Committee's companion plan approved Thursday differs in key details - but would still result in a deficit of $424 billion in 2027, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

Of course, this is one more example of Donald Trump sticking it to his enemies who may have voted for Hillary Clinton in the Presidential election. "If we simply look at this as being deficit-neutral, you're never going to get the type of tax reform and tax reductions that you need to get to sustain three percent economic growth", Mulvaney told Fox News.

-Frank Clemente, Americans for Tax FairnessHouse Republicans' vote in support of the proposed budget, Gupta concluded, "is an abdication of that responsibility". She said Medicaid was "on an unsustainable path".

The measure won approval along party lines.

No Democrats voted for the budget, and 18 Republicans voted against it.

"A lot of House members trust a lot of senators to introduce their own tax reform bills", said Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), alluding to how senators seek to show independence by offering their own bills.

"At this point there's been no change to the framework the way it was laid out, but we're again listening very carefully to ideas and how we can make sure we can deliver tax relief to those families", Brady said.
