(Aston) -- House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin is slated to visit Delaware County today to tout a $5 trillion tax-cutting plan released by President Donald Trump and his fellow congressional Republicans.

Ryan is scheduled to appear at Pennsylvania Machine Works, a pipe-fitting manufacturer in Aston about 20 miles southwest of Philadelphia.

He's expected to take questions from employees, although the sweeping plan omits critical, controversial details that could take months to work out in the GOP-controlled Congress and are necessary to determine whether a family would see a tax cut or a tax increase.

Trump says his plan will benefit the middle class, not millionaires and billionaires. But Democrats condemned it, saying it would result in a windfall for the wealthiest Americans and provide little to middle-class taxpayers.
