115th Congress


As we close in on the halfway mark for the 115th Congress, 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 while the chance for tax reform has not been foreclosed, there are already quiet conversations about advancing a smaller a package of tax cuts in lieu of full reform.


CDA will continue to press for those issues, such as repeal of the healthcare law, repeal of the estate tax, regulatory reforms and revisions to the overtime rule, which remain important to our members.
