In typical bullish form, Trump is publicly expressing great confidence that the bill - which he claims represents the biggest tax cut in history - will pass.
Republican Senator Susan Collins of ME has said she backs two provisions in the House bill - retaining an individual income tax deduction for state and local property taxes, capped at $10,000 a year, and keeping the existing top individual tax rate of 39.6 percent for those making $1 million or more.

However, those tax cuts will only last until 2027, at which point people making less than $75,000 will pay more. The Tax Cut Bill is getting better and better.
