The concept was bulletproof.

So House tax bill kills the estate tax, Senate's leaves it. Would it cost any Senate votes if it were killed? Because I'm not sure Trump signs it with the estate tax not killed.

Think that's right, but have a small reservation over what he'd do if he thought it didn't benefit him enough.

Hmmm, not sure. If a tax bill gets through it'll be once. My money is on him wanting estate tax gone because it is a billion dollars to his kids. Veto says congress needs to go back to the drawing board.

Plus, how are you predicting what this guy will do?

How to predict Trump:

(1) Identify the dumbest things you can think of to do in a situation
(2) Identify the most venal things that can be done
(3) Identify the most bitter, hostile things that can be done
(4) Identify the opposite of the things Obama has done
(5) Find the overlap in the above
(6) Think of something worse

Re: Mother, mother, mother - there's too many of you crying.

The "errors" people are now finding the tax bill are why I don't think they will actually pass one. The House obviously can't just adopt the Senate bill. The Senate didn't adopt the House bill. That means they (1) need to get the conference committee to agree to something, and (2) need to wrangle the cats again in each body to vote for it.

Seems like if leadership actually had the ability to do that, they would have already done so. It's not like they're working out the bipartisan compromises those procedures are meant for.

So about how both sides will only use harassment for political gain...

A bunch of D Senators (and others) are now calling for Franken to resign, and he's scheduled an announcement for the morning. Conyers has resigned (amid new, really creepy allegations that he mentioned Chandra Levy after being rejected by an intern/staffer).

Tell me again about how the parties are the same on this one?

(Meanwhile, in Minnesota, both the D and R legislators who were accused stepped down, so yeah.)
