Quick Glance: New Tax Bill Expands Child Tax Credit and Business Breaks
  • A comprehensive, bipartisan tax reform was passed by the House to expand the child tax credit for American families and reinstate tax breaks for businesses.

  • The widespread support in the House was critical for the legislation, fast-tracked under a tactic known as 'suspension' by Republicans.

  • The tax legislation passed would raise the refundable portion to $1,800 per child in 2023, $1,900 per child in 2024 and $2,000 per child in 2025.

  • The bill would also create tax benefits for people impacted by natural disasters and strengthen the low-income housing tax credit.

Quick Glance: Trump's Victory in Iowa
  • Donald Trump has achieved an overwhelming victory in the first US election contest of 2024, easily fending off a reduced field of Republicans in the Iowa caucuses.

  • With an estimated 99% of the votes counted, Trump was at 51%, DeSantis at 21.2%, and Haley at 19.1%.

  • The former president has shattered the previous record for the largest margin of victory in a contested Republican presidential race in the state, which stood at 12 percentage points.

  • An early estimate indicates that 100,000 Republicans participated in the caucuses on Monday, significantly lower than the turnout in 2016, according to Iowa Republican party chairman Jeff Kaufmann.
