5. hmm, looks like i goofed....

well it does appear that they did pass a budget resolution for fy2018.
not sure where i was told otherwise. anyway, you're right in that the tax bill was passed using reconciliation (which also means they must have passed a budget resolution).

however, they are allowed 3 reconciliation bills each fiscal year: one for spending, one for revenue, and one for debt ceiling.

i would think the tax bill would count as a revenue bill, which would leave republicans with the ability to pass one omnibus spending bill using reconciliation rules to keep the government running.
