  Trump: ‘Massive tax relief’ would be ‘best Christmas present of all’ President Trump said Tuesday that he wants to give Americans the "best Christmas present of all" with the GOP's upcoming push for tax reform. In a speech to the Heritage Foundation on Tuesday, Trump said that he wants to deliver "massive tax relief" to American families. "So let's give our country the best Christmas present of all," Trump said Tuesday.

Nothing seems to push lawmakers to get their jobs done and pass legislation more than the threat of having to be in Washington over the holidays.

Knowing this, Speaker Paul D. Ryan made it clear Thursday that Congress staying in session over Christmas is an option if they have not advanced a tax overhaul bill by then.

“We’re going to keep people here for Christmas if we have to,” the speaker said at a Heritage Foundation event. “I don’t care. We have to get this done.”

However, that won’t be necessary if all goes according to plan.

The goal is for the Senate to pass a budget resolution next week and go to conference with the House to quickly resolve the differences between their budgets. Once both chambers have adopted a reconciled budget with a common reconciliation instruction for the tax overhaul, the House Ways and Means Committee will release the tax overhaul bill and go to markup.

The House will then take up the measure on the floor with the goal of getting it passed and over to the Senate in November, Ryan said.

“We are actually on track timeline wise,” he said.

If the House does get a bill to the Senate in November, timing is then out of Ryan’s control until the upper chamber acts. But the Christmas threat is not empty as the two chambers are expected to pass different bills and a conference committee will likely be needed to close the gaps.

Ryan will want to keep his members in session until a conference committee report on the tax bill is passed.

The speaker also had a warning for members and anyone else who stands in the way of advancing the tax bill: “If we squander this opportunity, it’s not going to come back.”

The last time Congress overhauled the tax code was 1986, and Ryan and many members believe that if lawmakers don’t pass a new overhaul this year while they’ve got GOP control of the legislative and executive branches, that the trend of inaction will continue.

Republicans are already running into some issues with their plan, like growing opposition to a proposal to repeal the state and local tax deduction.

While some members are floating proposals on how to keep the tax break, albeit in a more limited form, Ryan has signaled that he wants to see it go.

“These are the issues that we have to help members see the bigger picture,” Ryan said when asked about the deduction Thursday.

Taxpayers from all states will better off because of proposals to double the standard deduction, increase the child tax credit and eliminate the marriage penalty, he said.

While there may be some “narrow thing” members don’t like in the GOP plan, the broader view about the overall benefit is prevailing, Ryan said.

“That’s why I feel so good about where we are in the House — and the Senate,” he said.

South Carolina men’s basketball picked to finish near bottom of SEC .
The media is down on the Gamecocks’ chances after last year’s March magic. South Carolina is coming off a dream season that saw the Gamecocks run up a 26-11 record, snap a 13-year NCAA tournament drought, and reach the program’s first-ever Final Four. But with star guards Sindarius Thornwell and P.J. Dozier now in the NBA, and key contributor Duane Notice lost to graduation, skepticism is understandable. It remains to be seen whether South Carolina caught lightning in a bottle or will be able to build on that groundbreaking campaign.
