The House Republican plan to overhaul the tax code will be the focus of intense debate over the next few weeks.

President Trump wants Congress to pass a measure he can sign by the end of the year, and it would be the first major change to the tax code in 30 years.

Congressman Richard Neal (D-Springfield), the ranking member of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee, joined Weekend Edition to discuss the new plan.

This segment aired on November 5, 2017.
