Trump, Democrats to meet to avert government shutdown
That would give bargainers time to work through their disagreements, but they will need Democratic votes to succeed. That, however, is not an issue impacting current budget talks. "It could happen", Trump said about a shutdown.

The findings came as congressional lawmakers were set to begin reconciling the differences included in the respective GOP tax overhaul bills that have passed the U.S. House and Senate in recent weeks.

If it does pass, it would be the most sweeping change to the US tax system since the Reagan era.

Of those who said they were sexually assaulted, 39 percent said it happened in a social setting, 37 percent said it happened at work, 27 percent said it happened in the home, 20 percent said it happened on the street, and 19 percent said it happened in school.

"That's the harsh assessment of President Donald Trump, whose tax plan is considered built for the rich at the expense of the rest", said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the poll.

A plurality of voters - 18 percent - said healthcare was the most important problem facing the country today. Another 13 percent of voters list foreign policy, while 11 percent cite terrorism and 10 percent list race relations.
