The president met Tuesday with Republican congressional leaders working on the tax overhaul, which aims to simplify the tax code, lower the rate for corporations, and reduce the tax burden for middle-class families. The challenge for Republican leaders is to be more effective at uniting the moderate and conservative wings of their party on tax reform than they were on health care. "So doubling that means you'd save a lot on your federal income tax every year", said Rauschenberger. She knows which side her political bread is buttered on, but the move has gone over like a lead balloon among Heitkamp's fellow Democrats. John Hoeven and Republican Rep. Kevin Cramer, weighing a bid to challenge Heitkamp. "It's what he's spending his T-I-M-E doing", the official said.
