2. Votorama

They’ll try to force votes on all types in nonsense. But in the db they can do nothing.

Parliamentarian is the last hurdle and this is a slam dunk regarding that part because it reduces the deficit.

3. I assume it has to be rescored by the CBO now

Once a lot of the tax increases are removed, it may no longer reduce the deficit like in its original state.

5. unlikely.

the part that was removed was only 14 billions out of 740 in the entire bill. The other tax measures are bringing way more. Somebody posted the breakdown in another thread.

The part that Sinema removed is 14 billions carried interest loophole but it was actually replaced by something else. Even without, it would still be massively reducing deficit.
