What is this thing I'm hearing about Rubio and Lee pushing to raise the corporate tax to 22% and to use that money to give larger child tax credit benefits to families with kids?

Can the R's push this through without even one D?

Is Rubio serious about this or will the Republicans vote down his amendment? Will Democrats vote with him on the amendment?

Does anyone know if they voted yet on his amendment?

I'm shocked - SHOCKED I tell you - that the WSJ's editorial board is disdainful of any attempts to blunt the massive gains for businesses (especially large corporations) in the proposed reforms. /s

They plan to pass this tax reform via reconciliation, which means they only need 50 votes (with Pence being the tie-breaker in that scenario). That means at least 3 republican senators would have to oppose. WaPo lists 10 that have voiced concerns, but I'm skeptical that there will be 3 that actually oppose it when they finally vote on it.

Something will pass... that much I'm sure of. What will be in it is still too uncertain. Insane
I'm an optimist; but only because life isn't going to give me any other good choices.

Pelosi?
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Is there a chance that they pass the Rubio-Lee amendment regarding the child tax credit?

I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
