Billions for Billionaires Bill Update

Deep thoughts from Marco Rubio

Marco ‘Big Gulp’ Rubio, the Cold Warrior for a New Generation, and beloved grandson figure of Wingnuts over the age of 65 and under the age of death, suddenly has found some vestigial remnant of his spine:

“Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) threatened to vote against [the tax bill] unless it further expands a child tax credit to millions of working families.”

Let’s recap, shall we?

  • Sen. Bob Corker (R Free-Agent) is a definite HELL NO.
  • Sen. Susan Collins allegedly is still pissed at the elimination of the ACA’s Individual Mandate. She voted for the Senate bill when amply be-chinned Mitch bribed her that he would let Lamar Alexander-Patty Murray legislation for shoring up the ACA have a vote.  She got played for a sucka.
  • Rubio actually means what he says (hahahaha).
  • UPDATE Rubio’s mini-me, Mike Lee, is alleged to be following Li’l Marco.
  • Grandpa Walnuts is in the hospital.
  • Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) is not well.
  • Senator-elect Doug Jones could be seated and Luther Strange un-seated (is too a verb!)

If any combo of three of these things happen, then the bill dies. Even if Walnuts and/or Cochran cannot vote, it counts as a NO, and Mike Pence cannot walk into the Senate and make the termites salivate as he casts a tie-breaking vote.

    If I were an evangelical, I would assume Divine Intervention is at play here. Since I’m not, I’ll go with karma.

    When the ACA passed, even thought the Democrats had enough votes to override the filibuster, McConnell made the Senate take 3 days and numerous votes, “readings”, prescribed time delays between readings and/or votes, and essentially delayed passage for several days (hoping the Democrats would give up as they wanted to break for Xmas). The Democrats should give McConnell a taste of his own medicine.
