The Senate bill is better, but it still has problems such as eliminating the SALT exemption. Regardless, Republican senators are having to thread a needle to get this in under the reconciliation rules which increases the odds of passage. It still adds $1.5 TRILLION to the debt, a move that shows how hypocritical Republicans will be when trying to score a win.

I find it funny to see the right wingers in here ignore that fact when presented with it. I can't find ONE who will go on record to say they support that fact after decades of attacking Ds on the matter. It just further shows how hypocritical they are. They chastise people for not adhering to "Christian values," yet they accept a president and others who practice the opposite. They attack Ds for adding to the debt, but when confronted with their own party's move that will do the same, they go quiet as a mouse. Talk about lack of ethics.

Well said RBear. The Republicans only care about deficit increases if they happen under a Democratic administration.

"They chastise people for not adhering to 'Christian values''", famous words from the left who do such with overwhelming frequency and audacity.
