If progressives were already having a bad day, this might make it worse:
Folks, you're not going to believe this, but the Senate just passed … another tax cut! https://t.co/UTsUVR0QdN

Touché Dems! You stalled the funding bill long enough to let the Reps make it even worse. Your work here is done.

As if the government funding deal wasn't bad enough, we now find out there's yet more tax cuts hidden in it.
The bill contains $31 billion in tax cuts & it delays implementing 3 health care taxes related to proper functioning of Obamacare. https://t.co/NuajoKbhsG
