(U.S. Edition) Another day, another potential tax plan. The House GOP recently released its proposed bill to overhaul America’s tax system, and now there’s word the Senate may release a proposal soon. We’ll look at reports that say that the Senate may delay changes to corporate taxes so that they wouldn’t phase in until 2019. Afterwards, we’ll take a brief step back and discuss some issues the U.S. auto industry is taking with this House tax proposal. It would eliminate a tax credit of up to $7,500 to get people to buy electric cars. And finally, we’ll speak with Cathy Cohen — lead investigator of GenForward, a nationally representative survey — about how millennials view race in the U.S.. While most white millennials don’t think minorities are taking their jobs, almost half think discrimination against whites is as big of a problem as discrimination against people of color.
