Tax plan expected to pass Senate, with help from a few holdouts

The GOP-led Congress’s sweeping tax reform plan appears to have enough support for Senate passage — with the apparent backing of several Republican senators whose nonsupport for the effort to repeal and replace Obamacare doomed the effort this summer.

House and Senate negotiators agreed Friday on a compromise bill that offers a substantial tax cut for corporations and across-the-board cuts for individuals, with final votes in the respective chambers expected next week.

Among those supporting the bill — a blend of the House and Senate versions — is Sen. Susan Collins.

The Maine Republican said this summer, with state residents in mind, that she opposed the Obamacare overhaul measure because Medicaid cuts were too deep, and because it didn’t go far enough to protect people with pre-existing conditions like diabetes or cancer.

    Squeal, Shriek, Snivel, Blubber, Bawl, & in general make an a$$ of yourself over the lowering of tax on the people who work for a living. It may not be as good as it could be butit will pass and the nation will benefit greatly from it.
    Nancy & Chuck are not opposed to tax reform because it will harm the country. They are in fact deathly afraid that the tax reform bill will increase the prosperity of the entire nation & bring an abrupt end to their political ideology.
    If that were not the case, they wouldn’t be trying to take credit for the Trump administrations robust economic turn around of the past year.

    The Republicans really do need to pass this bill, that will give the Democrats one more thing to use against them next year. The debt hawks just betrayed themselves and the corporate sell outs are out in the open for all to see. After a few million lose the health insurance and the rest see their rates go through the roof there’s a good chance people will show up and vote. Rubio thinks he can buy votes for a few dollars but since those dollars won’t come till after the election and the bad news will come much sooner and that’s what will be voted on. All the Democrats need now is for the republicans to start attacking Social Security, Go Ryan Go. We need a overhaul of the tax system to make it fairer and simpler. This isn’t what we need.

        The Law according to bobnstuff:
        1. Donald Trump Jr WAS guilty of breaking the law when he met with a Russian lawyer who reportedly had but never divulged damaging information or his fathers political opponent (Hillary Clinton).
        2. Hillary Clinton & the DNC DID NOT break the law when they paid (thru a series of intermediaries) for a British citizen (Christopher Steele) to compile (from two Russian sources) a dossier on Clintons political opponent (Donald J Trump).
        The new norm, elephants fly!!!!
