9:18 am
starters the senate bill keeps the current seven individual tax bracketsinstead of cutting it down to four like the house bill would. however this bill would allow people to write off their mortage interests up to one million dollars you may remember the house version capped that amount at 500-thousand dollars. so that's something that benefits people in the bay area because we know housing is so expensive. another main provision of the senate bill that's different is that it delaysthe proposed corporate tax cut until 2019 (alex) it's very interesting because i've talked to both republicans and democrats who feel pretty strongly that there will be some sort of congressional
