Senate Slaggards and McConnell At It Again
First they can’t seem to get motivated to approve President Trump’s appointees. Then they can’t make up their minds on Obamacare OR any other thing that has made it into their hands to review. (over a hundred bills are stalled from HR) NOW they can’t seem to get a TAX Change Bill concerning corporate tax – which happens to be a key element – done? Or is this just a “false start” issue?
Senate to delay corporate tax cut, breaking with Trump and House

Senate Republicans plan to propose delaying a cut in the corporate tax rate until 2019, according to a GOP senator.
Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) also said the individual mandate will not be repealed as part of the Senate tax overhaul proposal expected to be released Thursday.
The proposal breaks with President Trump’s preference that a corporate tax cut be put in place immediately. The House’s tax-reform legislation proposes lowering the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 20 percent in 2018.
Republicans are seeking to get a bill to President Trump’s desk by Christmas.
A House panel could report its version out of committee on Thursday, and that measure could get a vote in the full chamber next week.

Well, hearing Paul Ryan’s version of the coming days on tax reform reassures me tremendously. (NOT) I swear the Senate needs to take either an enema to clear up their sluggish system OR B-12 because the old farts need more energy.
