The so-called tax reform bill is not yet a done deal. That’s good, because it doesn’t reform anything and it’s not just about taxes.
The Senate passed its version of the bill about 2 a.m. Saturday, just hours after it was printed, meaning lawmakers didn’t have time to read the bill before they voted on it. Major differences between this bill and a House-passed version go to conference committee before a final version can be sent to the president’s desk.
But as usual, things can get screwy when Donald Trump gets involved. He indicated just hours after the vote that he may change his mind on the new proposed corporate tax rate. That’s right, Trump wanted to change his mind on a bill that just passed. If we thought Senate Leader Mitch McConnell was a good, well-intentioned lawmaker, we might feel sorry for him. But he’s not, and we’re not.
