A look at some winners and losers under the GOP tax plan

WASHINGTON (AP) — Count President Donald Trump among the personal winners in the $1.5 trillion tax package that congressional Republicans are on the verge of passing. It's not only a political score for Trump but likely a windfall for his real estate empire, too. Oil drillers would also benefit. So would multimillionaire and billionaire owners of sports teams.

Tax bill guts unpopular 'Obamacare' insurance mandate

WASHINGTON (AP) — Republicans didn't get their wish to repeal former President Barack Obama's health care law, but the tax bill barreling toward a final vote in Congress guts its most unpopular provision, the requirement that virtually all Americans carry health insurance.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Closing in on the first major legislative achievement of his term, President Donald Trump on Saturday defended the Republican tax cut as a good deal for the middle class while boldly suggesting it could lead to explosive economic growth. The legislation, which the GOP aims to muscle through Congress next week, would lower taxes on the richest Americans.

Quarles recuses himself from Wells Fargo matters

WASHINGTON (AP) — Randal Quarles, who is vice chairman for supervision at the Federal Reserve, says he will recuse himself from participating in matters specific to Wells Fargo & Co. The Fed announced the decision on Friday, saying Quarles wanted to "avoid even the potential appearance of a conflict of interest." Quarles noted that he had severed all financial ties he and his immediate family had with the bank, including selling off his stock in the banking giant. He said he was taking the step in light of the history his extended family members had with San Francisco-based Wells Fargo which involved the sale of their interest in a bank. Quarles joined the Fed board in October after being nominated...

For GOP, tax bill's most visible win may be averting failure

WASHINGTON (AP) — Despite the sheer size and society-spanning impact of the $1.5 trillion tax overhaul, the quickest and most potent political victory that Republicans would savor by pushing the bill through Congress next week may be what it averts: another big GOP legislative crash in the age of Trump. Even if Republicans are correct that tax cuts for business and the wealthy bolster the economy, it can take...
