Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, wouldn't say Sunday if she would vote against the current Republican tax plan under consideration in the Senate, but she ticked off a lengthy list of changes she hopes to see before any vote.

Thursday's New York Times reported on Page 1 that the bill would "tax the value of college tuition benefits conferred on thousands of university employees. one of several provisions that would hit colleges, universities and their students hard". The Senate's current bill bumps up against both of those limits, so any change to it needs to be paid for.

Asked by Stephanopoulos whether she could vote for the Senate version as it is now written, Collins said, "I haven't reached that conclusion yet".

(Remember, no deficit increases after ten years, so any tax cut beyond that point has to be matched to a revenue-raiser or spending cut.) But far from offering some alternative way of paying for a permanent cut to the corporate rate, Collins says we should make the individual cuts permanent too - which compounds the problem, and indeed would create a new problem even if mandate repeal were left in. "Thankfully, Sen. Susan Collins told us that she'd say no to tax breaks for the wealthiest".

Collins also weighed in on the ongoing sex scandals that have rocked the political, entertainment and sports worlds this fall. I hope the Senate will follow the lead of the House and strike it. She said she didn't support President Trump because of all of the reports by women of his sexual misconduct towards them.

Dubbed the "GOP Tax Reform Bill", Cole and other Oklahoma's Republican Congressmen all seemed to support the far-reaching bill, according to my limited research. "That would really help middle-income taxpayers".

"I did find them to be credible, disgusting appalling and degrading to women", she said.

A liberal group has launched a seven-figure ad campaign to encourage Republicans to vote against the Senate's tax bill.

Collins also wants to restore a deduction for state and local taxes. The proposal is called the Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and Safe Sport Authorization Act.
