GOP Tactics to Push Through Tax Bill Mimic Failed Obamacare Repeal Efforts

Over the summer, congressional Republicans unsuccessfully used an opaque process to pass legislation that would have taken health care away from millions of Americans. Today, with failed Obamacare repeals in the rearview mirror (at least for now), they have again teamed up with the Trump administration to cut taxes on the wealthy, corporations and foreign investors.

It does not seem that they learned any lessons from the health care failures: Congressional Republicans insisted on calling the same play again on taxes using the same process, bolstered by spurious and misleading facts despite little public support.
