Reveal of use of $15m in taxpayer funds as sex assault Confressional slush fund blew their plan.
The congress is suffering from extremely low ratings and nasty revelations such as the one you point out. If there’s one thing we can be sure of its that they don’t like the spotlight shined on their unpopularity and transgressions.
For that reason, I predict the senate will find a way to pass the tax cut legislation despite its antipathy towards Trump. Imagine if you will, the spectacular failure to produce constructive legislation for the American people in one year, under the backdrop of ever widening distrust and disgust by the voters. The congress in general is facing some serious back draft from voters next year if they don’t produce and clean up their act.
We will get some for of a tax cut if for no other reason than to redirect our focus and/or change the conversation for a little while. They don’t want us to know what sordid things go on behind the curtains.
