Republican Senator Just Used Pictures of Ronald Reagan Riding a Velociraptor and Luke Skywalker Riding a Tauntaun in a Bonkers Speech Against the Green New Deal
House and Senate Republicans face a new round of bargaining for their $1.5 trillion tax bill with the possible defection of a Republican senator, Marco Rubio of Florida. Questions continue about paying for the bill and how much will actually benefit low- and middle-income people versus corporations.
Republicans reached an agreement in conference committee Wednesday on a merged version of the House and Senate tax plans. In order to send the bill to President Donald Trump before Christmas, they need to vote on the legislation early next week.
In a surprise move Monday night, Senators Mike Lee and Jerry Moran announced their opposition to the GOP Senate bill, scuttling hopes of passing their Obamacare replacement in its current form.
