The difference, then, between "tax deferral" and "tax cut" is time. It is down around 25 per cent this week, its largest weekly loss since April 2013.
THE PRESIDENT: Mike, would you like to say a few words?
The RNC Chair, Ronna Romney McDaniel, recently gave a rather scathing response to these repeating media themes.
But the biggest chunk of the plan offers a stark and permanent tax cut for American companies, dropping the corporate rate from 35 percent to 21 percent. Democrat Doug Jones defeated him in a major embarrassment for Republicans. What have Democrats done this year? They have said so.
Donald Trump and six members of his inner circle will be big winners of the Republicans' vast tax overhaul, with the president personally benefiting from a tax cut of up to $15m a year, research shows.
"As promised, the American people will begin the new year with a new tax code".
It also brings to an end the unlimited federal deduction offered for state and local income and sales taxes. The Obamacare individual mandate tax is gone.
Under current law, the first $11.2m of a couple's estate's value is excluded from taxation, and any amount above this is taxed at a 40% rate.
"It's not a perfect bill". It should be in the business of encouraging work. "With final passage of this legislation, that is exactly what they are getting".

The House also passed an $81 billion disaster aid bill by a vote of 251 to 169 that would help Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and several states hit by this year's hurricanes or wildfires. Mario Rubio of Florida got a face-saving token increase in the Child Tax Credit.
But that came just hours after he tweeted a pitch for bipartisanship: "At some point, and for the good of the country, I predict we will start working with the Democrats in a bipartisan fashion". If you're in the process of buying a new home, however, it could affect you. Oh, and he tweets a lot.
"We have them, many of you have worked very hard, many of you have worked very, very fairly, and we really appreciate that", he said. If you have signed your contract, you'll need to finalize it by April in order to take advantage of the higher $1 million cap. I've been critical of every president at times. The House speaker, Paul Ryan, praised Trump for "exquisite presidential leadership".
Interested in Donald Trump?
He's a completely new breed of president to be sure, but zombies are not marching toward your doors just yet. You described it very well, Mr President.
Trump's year also closes with significant turnover of many top staffers who had been in the White House since early in his term. The personal exemption clause, which is currently set at $4,050, was dropped from the new legislation. "We're in the process already of designing new forms so that Americans don't have thousands of pages of tax forms", Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said recently. Guess what. Some of us weren't too wild about quite a few changes put in place by his predecessor, but it wasn't the end of the world. After taking all this into consideration, the draft would go back to committee.
What the FCC rollback of 'net neutrality' means to you
The FCC could have acted in the public interest and delayed the vote, or voted to sustain net neutrality in the public interest. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reiterated that principle as the FCC moved toward its decision.
