BREAKING: House has to vote again on tax scam!

I guess they can't get anything right. Any chance the result is different?

1. Here is the real kicker,

the procedure.

10. The senate has to remove two very minor provisions

and since there is a change the House will have to vote on the bill again

The items to remove are allowing 529's to be used for homeschooling expenses, and exceptions for a few specific colleges.

I really doubt these were deal breakers for the Pubs, so I wouldn't get your hopes up

12. I am not sure what post 1 is talking about, the House is always simple majority

The Senate would need defectors from our side... If this drags out past 12/31. I doubt that happens.

The only time the House ever needs more than a simple majority it overriding a veto, which I don't expect to be in play here

14. House will have to vote for tax-cut bill again

There was a portion of the House bill that failed under the reconciliation rules http://thehill.com/blogs/floor-action/house/365670-house-will-have-to-vote-for-tax-cut-bill-again

House Republicans will need to pass their tax plan for a second time after the Senate parliamentarian ruled that provisions in the bill violated the rules governing the legislation.

"Members are advised that we expect Senate Democrats to insist on a Byrd Point of Order on the Conference Report to Accompany H.R. 1, which is likely to be sustained," said guidance from House Majority Whip Steve Scalise's (R-La.) office, which was sent to GOP lawmakers.

"As such, Members are further advised that an additional procedural vote on the Motion to Concur is expected tomorrow morning, which will clear the bill for President Trumpís signature," his office added.
