A Tax Bill for Christmas

President Donald Trump signed the republican tax bill before heading to Florida for Christmas. The $1.5 million tax bill is the largest tax overhaul in 30 years and passed through Congress without a single democrat vote. The bill has been criticized for providing permanent tax cuts to large corporation while only providing temporary cuts to most middle to low-income Americans.

On Friday Trump also signed in a continuing resolution that will keep the government funded through Jan. 19 while adding $4 billion to missile defense.
