In the early morning hours of December 2nd, the Senate passed their version of the tax cut bill. This action immediately put liberals into a complete tailspin of emotion. The House, however, still needs to pass a new bill matching the Senate’s plan in order to avoid a committee conferencing to individually debate differences. From there, the Senate and the House will pass new bills matching each other then Trump will sign it into action.
No doubt a tough sell on tax reform, Rand Paul eventually came around on tax reform, ultimately supporting the Senate’s final proposed version. He noted:
“As we took on tax reform, I worked directly with President Donald Trump and spoke out in Congress to make sure we kept our promises to the American people, secured a tax cut for more families, and repealed the Obamacare individual mandate.
While I still would have preferred larger cuts, this bill provides a foundation on which to continue building. Today marks a victory for giving the American people back more of their own money and reforming an archaic tax code.”
Framing all of this as a foundation makes sense when you consider that the tax code will still be a complex puzzle of rules and restrictions even after the signing into an action of the new bill. However, amidst all of this, the left remains typically distraught in a sense of irrational hysteria, showing that indeed the GOP did the correct thing with this bill.
