Senate Passes Tax Reform Bill

Good. On to reconciliation.

Presiding over the Senate, Vice President Mike Pence announced the 51-49 vote to applause from Republicans. Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., was the only lawmaker to cross party lines, joining the Democrats in opposition. The measure focuses its tax reductions on businesses and higher-earning individuals, gives more modest breaks to others and offers the boldest rewrite of the nation’s tax system since 1986.

    “And a $10T debt increase was what?”

    A debt on the backs of our children and grandchildren.

    Please link to your histrionics about that when it occurred.

    Otherwise FOAD.

    Deal with it.
