Brady guarantees state and local deductions won't be eliminated

Brady (R) on "Fox News Sunday"

Rep. Kevin Brady, chairman of the Ways and Means committee, was unequivocal when asked on "Fox News Sunday" whether he could guarantee that deductions for state and local taxes would not be eliminated in the final tax plan: "I can," he said.

When host Chris Wallace followed up, asking if Brady meant he would not under any circumstances accept a Senate proposal eliminating the deductions (as the current Senate plan does), there was no hesitation: "that's what I'm saying."
