"The cuts President Trump has proposed will explode the deficit to the tune of $4 trillion over the next ten years".

Still, there may be room to negotiate over the Republicans' insistence on repealing the estate tax, Neal indicated, since "there are other things you can do with it" to revise it, short of complete elimination. "The idea is that by cutting these taxes, these people will be investing more".

He spoke to supporters about the proposal in Indianapolis, where he announced individual income tax brackets would be reduced from seven to three, the New York Times reported. The child tax credit would also increase, though the number is not yet specified, and there would be new credits for "dependents" who are not children.
