As the second session of the 115th Congress begins, the plans laid by a Republican majority in both the House and Senate have not come to fruition. President Donald Trump and GOP lawmakers had vowed to make repeal of Obama’s healthcare law a top priority, along with a total tax overhaul. At this juncture, repeal of the Affordable Care Act has proven too hard to pass, and a smaller, but still significant tax cuts package was passed at the end of 2017 in lieu of full reform on the tax code. After a short government shutdown mid month, there is a renewed hope that Congress can proceed is more regular order.
