President Donald Trump is reportedly looking at doing a tax overhaul and an infrastructure package at the same time.

The Trump administration is looking at doing tax reform and an infrastructure package at the same time, reports Axios.

Infrastructure was likely going to be delayed until next year, but coupling it with a tax overhaul has now become possible in the wake of the health-care debacle.

Dangling infrastructure spending is a way to buy the support of potentially dozens of Democrats, which means he wouldn’t have to bargain with GOP hardliners.
