House Passes Tax Bill.

Along party lines, the House passed a tax reform bill, with 13 Republicans joining all Democrats in opposition. The bill would cut the corporate rate to 20% and would end the state and local tax deduction. This is a brief report.

Guests: (Audio Segment) Rep. Carlos Curbelo, R-FL, Washington, DC.

Election Takeaways. Women and Latino candidates made strong gains in Tuesday’s elections around the country. A Latina candidate elected to Virginia’s state legislature talks about the takeaways of her historic victory. And a political analyst comments on the results of an election eve poll in Virginia, which sheds light on anti-immigrant race-baiting in recent campaigns. And a political strategist defends her organization’s decision to counter racist campaign attacks with images linking them to followers of the Confederation.
