For Trump, personal victory must come at all costs — Letter

White House Director of Legislative Affairs Marc Short said Monday the administration expects tax reform to pass as early as November.

Because budget reconciliation legislation requires only a simple majority of 51 votes, rather than a filibuster-proof 60 votes for regular legislation, the Senate GOP chose it as a vehicle to try to pass repeal and replace legislation. Unless this is done, you will most certainly see in future elections a major political reordering of the Congress neither conducive to conservatism nor preservation of the Constitution itself.

Republicans have also been fighting to get rid of the controversial Cadillac tax. They should take compromise seriously and consider a range of Republican proposals: from giving states more flexibility in implementing Obamacare to increasing the number of workers a company must employ before it's required to provide insurance benefits. Nearly 3 in 5 healthcare.gov customers qualify for the assistance, which can reduce a deductible of $3,500 to several hundred dollars.

In the House, a group of around 40 Republicans and Democrats known as the Problem Solvers Caucus endorsed an outline of ideas aimed at making urgent fixes to Obamacare. And then nothing important will happen in Congress, except that Republicans and Democrats will point fingers at each other and work hard overtime at getting reelected.

An internal memo published by the New York Times suggests they're going after colleges that discriminate against white applicants.

By the first August recess of the Obama administration, only four nominees needed cloture votes - that is, a vote to end the debate on a nominee so that senators can move on to a confirmation vote. "IT'S TIME!" the president said over Twitter.

McCain was joined in his "no" vote by Republican Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, who earlier in the week had received a call from the secretary of the Interior warning that the administration would drop its support for expanded energy drilling and road construction in Alaska if she dared to defy the president and Republican leadership on the crucial vote.

"We've got to let it simmer for a while until we get both sides into a position where they see we've got to do something here", said Hatch, a Utah Republican.

In 2015, when there wasn't a snowball's chance in the desert that Obama would sign the repeal of Obamacare, the Republicans in lockstep eagerly passed a repeal bill.

And we are now confident that, without transitioning to a new domestic consumption-based tax system, there is a viable approach for ensuring a level playing field between American and foreign companies and workers, while protecting American jobs and the U.S. tax base.

The best recipe for a turnaround in fortunes for Trump and Republicans, in the end, is success, which inevitably begets more success.

What do we take away, then, from the earthquake on the Senate floor last week, with wisps of smoke still rising from the ruins of Republican efforts to do something - anything! - likely to rationalize the health care mess? Meanwhile, House Republicans are fighting with one another, but are united in being pissed at Senate Republicans.

"They just as much reflect the party trends as any election", Storey said. That's why "borrow and print" is a politically convenient way for lawmakers to stealthily raise taxes.

Forty-five Senate Democrats sent Republican leadership a letter Tuesday.

But now that the Republican-led effort officially failed, look for frustrated GOP voters to begin demanding answers from their Republican representatives.

Cassidy and Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Dean Heller, R-Nev., have proposed converting the $110 billion they estimate Obama's law spends yearly for health insurance into broad grants to states. Kristine Grow, spokeswoman for the insurance industry group America's Health Insurance Plans, said Monday that halting the federal payments would boost premiums for people buying individual policies by 20 percent.

But the Mueller probe is out of his hands.

The upshot is that modest, permanent tax cuts, financed by scrapping the state and local deduction, are achievable. And the bluster didn't sway the three holdouts.
