The leading Democrats said that they wouldn't meet with the president, but would still like to discuss a deal with establishment Republicans.

Ms Pelosi and Mr Schumer said both sides agreed that the wall would not be part of this agreement - but that the President made clear he intends to pursue it at a later time.

Trump's supposed stance on the partial government shutdown has conflicted with Republican lawmakers, who are desperate for Democratic support to gain votes. A House version of the bill would also reclassify tuition waivers for graduate students as taxable income, meaning graduate students could be saddled with massive tax bills. According to the Tax Policy Center, 63 percent of the total savings from the Senate bill in 2019 would go to taxpayers earning more than $150,100 (the top 20 percent of earners), while nearly a quarter would go to the top 5 percent - people making upwards of $303,200.

"We hope that the Democrats aren't going to put our service members abroad at risk by trying to hold the government hostage over partisan politics, and attaching that", Sanders told reporters on Monday.

MCEVERS: Are there any other ways Trump would or would not benefit from the tax plan? "These issues are too important". His company's research showed that only about a third of companies planned on using the tax cuts to reinvest in their businesses.

MCEVERS: Yeah. Another change that Trump has called for is the elimination of the estate tax, which is a tax people pay on the money that they leave behind when they die. Mr McConnell also said he "can't recall ever turning down" such a rendezvous at the White House. That, Trump argues, is his plan for reducing the debt.

Congress has until Dec. 8 to pass a spending bill to avert a government shutdown and Senate Republicans are expected to bring their tax bill to a vote this week. That analysis suggests that over the next decade, the deficit will be increased by $1 trillion. He has sought a "backstop" that would create automatic tax increases if the tax bill doesn't spur strong economic growth as Republicans have promised.

"This is our chance to free our economy and our workers from the terrible tax burden in Washington".

John Conyers, D-Detroit, is in the hot seat after a series of sexual misconduct allegations have come to light - including that he used taxpayer funds to settle a wrongful dismissal complaint. Think of it, doubled. "What it means is these couples can leave their children $10 million untaxed". According to White House excerpts, Trump plans to say "we have a once in a lifetime opportunity to restore American prosperity and reclaim America's destiny".

The House passed a pure tax measure, while the Senate included a provision to scrap the Obamacare mandate that most people buy health insurance or pay a penalty.

"I'm very supportive of doing that", said Hartzler.

Lisa Adams of St. Charles was among those voicing disapproval toward the President and the tax plan. So far, House leadership hasn't indicated it wants to include a repeal of the mandate in its package.
