WASHINGTON – Republicans powered a $4 trillion budget through the House on Thursday by a razor-thin margin, a close vote underscoring the difficulties that lie ahead in delivering President Donald Trump’s promise to cut taxes.For now, Republicans sidestepped divisions within the party by voting 216-212 to permit them to begin work on a $1.5 trillion tax cut without fear of blocking tactics by Democrats. The legislative landscape is strewn with land mines, however, as GOP tax-writers pick winners and losers among interest groups, business sectors and rank-and-file voters.The tax bill is the top item on the GOP agenda and would be Trump’s first big win in Congress. Republicans hope it would provide a much-needed jolt for the party’s political fortunes in advance of next year’s midterm elections. Republicans view passage of the upcoming tax measure as a once-in-a-generation opportunity, and its importance has only grown since the party’s debacle on health care.The goal is a full rewrite of the inefficient, loophole-laden tax code in hopes of lower rates for corporations and other businesses and a burst of economic growth. But evidence is growing that some of their hoped-for bold steps — such as eliminating the deduction for state and local taxes — will be replaced by half-measures dictated by politics and a narrow margin for error.GOP leaders scrambled in recent days to overcome resistance from House conservatives unhappy about deficits and debt, as well as opposition by lawmakers from high-tax states upset about plans to eliminate the state and local tax deduction. That could mean higher taxes for many middle-class earners, and top Republicans like Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin promise a compromise that won’t be as costly to middle-class taxpayers.Joining all Democrats in opposing the measure were 20 Republicans, a mix of spending hawks and centrists. More than half come from New York and New Jersey and vehemently reject any effort to roll back the state and local tax deduction.“This isn’t over,” said Rep. Tom MacArthur, R-N.J., who opposed the budget after voting for it earlier this month. House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said concerns by lawmakers such as MacArthur about the deduction would be addressed in coming days, and it was the topic of a post-vote meeting that included top GOP leaders.“We stood firm … to let them know we’re not kidding,” said Rep. John Katko, R-N.Y., as he exited the session.The Senate passed the budget measure last week and the House endorsed it without changes, a step designed to allow Republicans to move quickly to the tax measure in hopes of passing it into law this year. House and Senate leaders want to pass companion measures before Thanksgiving with a final compromise coming before year’s end.Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady, R-Texas, said immediately after the vote that he’ll release the tax measure on Nov. 1 and that a panel vote is expected the week of Nov. 6.That timetable is ambitious as numerous details, including ways to raise revenues to help finance cuts to individual and corporate tax rates, remain unresolved. The tax plan’s popularity is not a given with voters, however, and fissures among Republicans could to slow the measure.A battle over tax-free contributions to retirement accounts has also broken open, and Republican tax-writers have yet to lock down dozens of crucial details on tax rates and preferences. Republicans may also drop efforts to fully repeal taxes on multimillion-dollar estates, even though the idea is a longstanding feature of the party’s tax agenda.“I’m confident that there will be a tax bill. I’m confident that it will be an improvement over current policy. How good it is yet to be determined,” said former Sen. Phil Gramm, R-Texas, a veteran of Reagan-era tax battles and an architect of a 2001 tax cut. “You always dream of wiping things off the books and making dramatic changes, but it’s very hard to do.”The underlying budget measure abandons the Republican Party’s promise to rein in deficits in favour of Trump’s boast of “massive tax cuts.” The measure drops proposed cuts to mandatory programs such as food stamps, though conservatives promise to take on spending cuts later.“I still feel strongly about addressing unsustainable mandatory spending,” said Rep. Diane Black, R-Tenn., who chairs the House Budget Committee. “I think we will tackle this important issue in the future. We don’t have a choice.”Democrats united against the plan, arguing its tax cuts will pad the bank accounts of the wealthy and the balance sheets of corporations, while delivering modest relief — or none at all — to middle-income taxpayers.“These tax cuts will not create an economic boom, but will instead lead to a higher concentration of wealth among the rich, while dramatically increasing deficits and debt,” said Rep. John Yarmuth, D-Ky.House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., urged Democrats immediately after the vote to “be fully mobilized to expose the ruinous consequences of Republicans’ plans to raise taxes on the middle class, especially as Republicans try to race their bill through the House before the American people can see the damage it will cause in their lives.”The budget plan calls for $5 trillion in spending cuts over the decade, including cuts to Medicare, Medicaid and the Obama-era health care law, though Republicans have no plans to actually impose those cuts with follow-up legislation. Some Democrats criticized the measure for ruthless spending cuts; others took the opposite approach, failing it for tackling the deficit.
LONDON — Britain’s Parliament has delivered a crushing verdict on Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit divorce deal, rejecting it by 432 votes to 202 — the biggest defeat suffered by a government in modern British political history.That leaves the country’s EU exit process in crisis, with just 10 weeks until it is due to leave the bloc on March 29.On Wednesday, May’s government faces a no-confidence vote in Parliament. If it survives, May has until the start of next week to come back to Parliament with a Plan B.Here’s a look at what might happen next.TRY AND TRY AGAINAfter Tuesday’s defeat, May assured the House of Commons that “the House has spoken and the government will listen.” She plans to hold talks with lawmakers from across the political spectrum before announcing a new plan.But May’s office has downplayed the prospect of major changes to the deal that has been negotiated, and EU leaders are adamant that the 585-page withdrawal agreement cannot be reopened.That means May could return to Parliament next week with a tweaked deal that is only slightly different to the previous one. But that is unlikely to win over many opponents of the agreement.Tim Bale, professor of politics at Queen Mary University of London, said most leaders who had suffered a defeat on this scale would be “either resigning or looking to trash the deal that they’d got and do something utterly different.”May, however, has proven stubbornly resistant to changing her Brexit “red lines.”“It looks as if we’re just going to get more of the same and that she’ll come back in a week or so’s time with nothing substantially different from what we’ve got now,” Bale said.__DELAY BRITAIN’S EXITParliament has rejected May’s deal, but is split on what to do instead. Some lawmakers want to tack toward a softer Brexit that would see Britain keep close ties to the bloc, while others want to walk away from the EU without a deal.With Parliament split, there is a growing chance Britain will seek an extension to the two-year exit process that is due to expire on March 29.Some ministers are urging May to delay Brexit and then consult lawmakers in a series of “indicative votes” to see if a majority can be found for a new plan. And various factions of lawmakers are exploring ways to use parliamentary rules to wrest control of the Brexit process from the government.A delay would likely also be needed in the event of two other possible scenarios: a general election, or a second referendum. Any delay to the date of Brexit would require unanimous approval from leaders of the EU’s remaining 27 member states.___HOLD AN ELECTIONImmediately after Tuesday’s vote in Parliament, opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn called a no-confidence vote in the government, to be held Wednesday evening.If the government loses, Britain is facing an election for a new Parliament and government. The government is likely to survive, however. Almost all members of the governing Conservatives say they will support May, as will her parliamentary allies in Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party.Labour says it will keep trying to force an election, and could attempt more no-confidence votes in the coming weeks.___SECOND REFERENDUMThe campaign to revisit Brexit in a second referendum — driven largely by supporters of the losing “remain” side in the 2016 referendum — has been gathering steam as the pitfalls and complexity of the divorce process become clear.The government is firmly opposed, but many lawmakers believe a new referendum may be the only way out of the Brexit impasse.But it’s unclear what the question would be. Many pro-EU politicians want a choice between leaving on the proposed terms and staying in the EU, but others say leaving without a deal should also be an option.There’s a strong chance any new referendum would be as divisive as the first.___NO DEALThis is the outcome few want — but it is also the default option. If the divorce deal is not approved, altered or put on hold, Britain will cease to be an EU member at 11 p.m. London time on March 29.The Bank of England has warned that tumbling out of the bloc with no deal to soften the exit could plunge Britain into its deepest recession in nearly a century, and businesses warn the sudden end to longstanding trading agreements with the EU could see gridlock at British ports and shortages of food and medicines.___Follow AP’s full coverage of Brexit at: https://www.apnews.com/BrexitJill Lawless, The Associated Press

Kolkata: Passengers of Kolkata Metro had to face tremendous harassment twice on Thursday morning and afternoon. In the morning, Metro services were disrupted after a technical glitch caused sparks in the third rail. Later in the afternoon, Metro services were suspended due to maintenance work.According to sources, on Thursday morning at around 8:30 am, a Metro rake started moving from Noapara towards Kavi Subhas. Just before entering the Dum Dum station, a spark occurred on the third rail. Immediately after the spark, smoke was seen coming out. Passengers travelling from Noapara got panic stricken, with similar recent incidents still fresh on their minds. Also Read – Centuries-old Durga Pujas continue to be hit among revellersWasting no time, Metro authorities disconnected power supply to the third rail and evacuated the passengers through the driver’s cabin. The engineers were called in urgently. Meanwhile, office-goers came to Dum Dum and other Metro stations to find the services being unavailable. After almost an hour and a half of work, Metro services were resumed. During the disruption, truncated services were on between Kavi Subhas and Girish Park. However, it was not the end of harassment for the passengers as Metro authorities decided to again suspend service between Dum Dum and Girish Park for maintenance work from 1:16 pm. As there was no prior information, commuters faced immense trouble. Normal services were resumed from 2:16 pm.
An admittedly shy Garrett Goebel blushed when first-year Ohio State coach Urban Meyer announced him as one of five captains to lead the Buckeyes this fall. “I walked out there and my face got red,” the fifth-year senior said bashfully. For Goebel, the attention – the mere notion of interest - is arguably a novelty. So is dealing with reporters, photographers and the hot lights from camera crews trying to get their scoop. And to the casual fan, the veteran 6-foot-4, 290-pound defensive lineman is, in all likelihood, a new face. While Goebel has made 44 tackles in 39 games for the Buckeyes, he’s managed to effectively fly under the radar in Columbus since arriving to campus in 2008. Now, such potential for innocuity seems to have evaporated as his honor as a captain has vaulted the Villa Park, Ill., native into the frenzy surrounding Meyer’s inaugural season at OSU. The lack of stardom isn’t something that often crosses Goebel’s mind, though. “I never really thought about it. I know I was never really too concerned. I just wanted to go out there and play good football,” he said. “I really don’t care too much about myself or being recognized or anything like that.” In fact, the active pursuit of being a captain, he said, wasn’t necessarily his aim. “I mean, I never really thought about it too much. Like, if it happens, it happens – it’s an honor. If it doesn’t, I’m not gonna get my head down or anything, you know, I’m still gonna go out there, work as hard as I can and lead,” Goebel said. “But it was just cool knowing that my teammates, you know, thought that highly of me.” In such a leadership role, Goebel automatically becomes an identifiable name for the Buckeyes – regardless of how much he likes the commotion around it all. And while some might wonder how a player with such a reserved disposition is best fit to lead, Goebel said his leadership is best demonstrated with his play, not his words. “I certainly say that I lead more by example but, you know, I still say stuff to people and, you know, make sure everyone knows what they’re doing and get everyone lined up,” he said. His content with being in the background, though, almost made him invisible to Meyer when he took over the OSU job in November. “I think I made the comment, I didn’t know Garrett. In the first four months I was here, he was just kind of a quiet guy that, you know, doesn’t look real good when we’re running around cones,” Meyer said at a Monday evening press conference. Meyer told reporters that the big man grew on him over time, though. Goebel said giving it his all day-in and day-out, especially during winter strength and conditioning drills, drew the attention of the former Florida coach. “I just worked as hard as I could every day – every day come in no matter what and just give it everything I had and do my best and I think he definitely appreciates guys that go hard all the time,” he said. Interesting enough, it seems that Goebel’s introverted, modest demeanor is nearly a perfect fit for the position he plays for the Buckeyes. Listed as the Buckeyes’ starter at nose tackle – arguably one of the most thankless positions in all of sports – Goebel is, and will be, responsible for doing what junior defensive tackle Johnathan “Big Hank” Hankins calls the “dirty work” for OSU’s “Silver Bullet” defense. “He’s probably one of the biggest pieces on our defense. He does all the dirty work, he takes up all the double teams – even though I take up double teams – but he does more of the dirty work,” Hankins said. “He’s a great leader for us, without him I feel like we would probably be kind of, like, out of shape because he basically knows the defense and he’s smart and he knows the play.” Similarly, redshirt senior linebacker Etienne Sabino said Goebel’s position is often unfairly unappreciated. “He’s our nose guard … He doesn’t get the credit he deserves, but he’s actually a very, very good player; for anybody who really knows football and watches him play, he’s actually a very, very good player,” he said. “Taking on 600 pounds every play is not an easy task, by no means, and he does a great job at that.” Despite Goebel’s low-key nature, Hankins said he knew his teammate would be a captain from the get-go, though. “Oh, I already knew he was going to become a captain. Since this year started, he took a leadership role and he just, you know I’m saying, worked hard, and I always looked up to him, watching film and learning from him,” he said. Sabino, who was also named a captain for 2012, said neither he nor the team was particularly surprised when Goebel’s name was called. “I think it’s probably more of a surprise to the media and everybody outside of the team, but Garrett comes to work everyday,” Sabino said. “He’s one of those players you know he’s going to do his assignment, it doesn’t matter whether it’s period one or period 40, he’s going to give it all he has. And you know, you’re going to get that regardless of the circumstances.” That admiration, however, wasn’t just limited to Goebel’s teammates. Former OSU head coach and current defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Luke Fickell said Goebel is “that unsung hero.” “I’m just so happy that Coach (Meyer) really points it out. I think (Goebel’s) really grown on him,” Fickell said. “He sees what we try to do as a defense and what we ask that guy sometimes to do and, you know, it doesn’t come up in the stat sheet and you guys might not interview him a whole lot … but he is definitely one of the center points of the defense.” Fickell, who was a nose tackle for the Buckeyes from 1993-1996, seemed to understand the magnitude of Goebel’s honor. “To be named captain, I think – what an unbelievable feat,” Fickell said. For Goebel, it’s still a feat, though, that he didn’t entirely see coming. “My goal was to do everything I can and really didn’t think about it if everything worked out,” he said. “I mean, yeah, it would definitely be cool, but I really wasn’t thinking about it – I was thinking about just giving everything I had and just trying to lead the best I can.”

OSU won, 63-14.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorThe road ahead is the only one on Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer’s mind these days.Meyer and the Buckeyes (8-0, 4-0) are scheduled to travel to West Lafayette, Ind., Saturday to take on Purdue (1-6, 0-3). But even though the Boilermakers have defeated OSU in three out of its last four trips to Ross-Ade Stadium, Meyer said that’s not something he’s thinking about.“We’re just trying to get the win on the road at Purdue,” Meyer said Monday during a press conference.Purdue, who is led by a former Buckeye assistant, has not played since losing on the road to Michigan State Oct. 19, 14-0, and currently sits at the bottom of the Big Ten Leaders Division.The Boilermakers’ early struggles pushed the coaching staff to make major changes schematically on defense, Meyer said.“They changed — they were all 4-3 defense about three weeks ago before the Nebraska game, (and they) changed completely” Meyer said. “They’re now (a 3-4 defense). So that means they’re just going through some personnel issues and some scheme issues … We’re just trying to figure out what we’re going to see Saturday because it’s completely different from the first half of the season.”Although Purdue is currently on a five-game losing streak, junior tight end Jeff Heuerman said OSU shouldn’t struggle with finding the motivation to take on the Boilermakers.“Our coaching staff does a great job (motivating) regardless of who we’re playing,” Heuerman said. “Going into Purdue, I was there my freshman year and it didn’t turn out the way that we wanted it. I think there’s a lot of guys on the team that remember that, my class and stuff. This week is a big week for us, and we got something to prove going back to Purdue.”The game Heuerman referred to was a 26-23 overtime Purdue victory in 2011, when OSU tied the game with 55 seconds left in regulation after then-junior running back Jordan Hall made a touchdown reception, but the go-ahead extra point was blocked, sending the game into overtime.OSU kicked a field goal on its opening possession but couldn’t stop Purdue from securing the victory with a one-yard touchdown run from then-junior quarterback Robert Marve.Senior kicker Drew Basil, who attempted the extra point against the Boilermakers, said Monday he remembers the play very well.“Being on a grass field, there was a bare spot where the extra point was so I moved the ball over to the right, maybe six inches, just so I could get a good spot for the hold,” Basil said. “And they blocked it from that right side. In hindsight, maybe I shouldn’t have moved the ball over six inches.”Basil said the loss was tough, but that it’s important for the team to focus on beating Purdue this week.Junior linebacker Curtis Grant was also on the team that day in West Lafayette, and said no matter the records, Purdue always plays well against OSU.“It’s always that one team that’s always out to just get you,” Grant said Monday. “Purdue seems like that, since the last two years that I’ve been here, they’re always out to get us. I’m not expecting anything less.”Grant gave credit to the OSU coaching staff, particularly Meyer, for preventing the team from losing focus during their 20-game winning streak.“Each and every week (the coaches) don’t let us get complacent,” Grant said. “They come out each and every week with a new task, a new challenge for us to complete.”Senior running back Carlos Hyde, who has rushed for 549 yards and seven touchdowns since Big Ten play started, said “it’s not difficult at all” to find motivation to play a team with a losing record.“This is a one-game season,” Hyde said Monday. “We can’t take any opponent lightly because we’re Ohio State, so people are going to give us their best shot.”The man leading Purdue this season is Darrell Hazell, who was promoted to assistant head coach at OSU under Jim Tressel in 2005 after being wide receivers and kick returns coach with the Buckeyes for a season. Hazell was named the Boilermakers coach at the end of last season after spending two years as the coach of the Kent State squad.Current OSU defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Luke Fickell coached alongside Hazell under Tressel. He said although Purdue has only won one game so far in 2013, Hazell’s consistency as a coach will allow him to lead the Boilermakers in the right direction.“You don’t change who you are, and that’s what I know about him,” Fickell said Monday. “It’s not like he’s going to be down or he’s going to do something crazy or something different because they’re in the situation that they are. You gotta battle through tough times and when you’re consistent, your young men learn and they learn that from you.”Purdue might be struggling this season, but Hyde said he knows it is going to give OSU its best, just like any team the Buckeyes face.“We’re Ohio State. So people are going to play us their best,” Hyde said. “That’s what I expect. I don’t expect teams to come out and just lay down. I feel like they’re going to come out and give us their best shot. And that’s what I want. I want teams to come out and give us their best shot. So when we win, we say we beat them with their best shot.”Kickoff is slated for noon at Ross-Ade Stadium.

Mauricio Pochettino does not believe winning trophies will automatically take Tottenham to the next level.Spurs woes were compounded with a 2-0 defeat at Crystal Palace in the FA Cup fourth round after losing to Chelsea in the Carabao Cup semi-final inside four days.However, the Argentine boss is not losing focus on Spurs as he is adamant trophies will not weave the magic overnight.“Again we’re going to have the debate on whether a trophy will take the club to the next level. I don’t agree with it. It only builds your ego. The most important thing for Tottenham right now is to always be in the top four.”He added via Sky: “It’s true, this season has been tough.
