  Trump officials reach out to Democrats on tax overhaul by Stephen Ohlemacher on May 17, 2017, 4:05 PM WASHINGTON (AP) — Trump officials are reaching out to Senate Democrats for help as they craft a tax overhaul package. It’s a departure from the go-it-alone strategy Republicans have been taking on health care.Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin (mih-NOO’-shin) and other administration officials met with Republican and Democratic members of the Senate Finance Committee Wednesday.Afterward, several Democrats described the meeting as a broad discussion short on specifics.Sen. Maria Cantwell of Washington state called it an opening discussion.Previously, Senate Republicans said they were prepared to pass a tax overhaul using special Senate rules that would allow them to bypass Senate Democrats altogether.However, with only 52 Republicans in the Senate, the strategy would leave little room for error.
