Not So Huge
The Trump tax cuts may not be quite what you hoped for:
The House is set to vote on the Republican health-care plan on Thursday, and even with the tweaks lawmakers have been making to it, passage looks iffy.Granted, it can take a long time to get anything done in Washington. But not as long to mess up a good idea...
Moreover, if it does pass, the bill’s prospects in the Senate aren’t good. But before Senate Republicans can come up with their own version of the health-care legislation, they have a Supreme Court nominee to approve.
Then, if the Senate can pass a bill of its own, there will be a House-Senate conference to resolve differences.
It is a process that would come with significant hurdles even in normal times, much less today’s distraction-riddled political climate. At the least, the health-care bill could be sitting on Capitol Hill for a long time.
