Getting back to FACTS and the subject of the forum. The senate is hoping they can use tricks and gimmicks to pass the bill. However, it looks as if there are problems. Nobody was thinking about taking care of the middle class. They were concerned with needing to pass the bill with a simple majority in the Senate and rewarding their rich donors.
However, a report from the Penn Wharton Budget Model at the University of Pennsylvania said the Senate bill would cut federal revenue in each year from 2028 to 2033. That finding would mean it doesn’t comply with a key budget rule that Senate Republican leaders want to use to pass their bill with a simple majority over Democrats’ objections.
In essence, that rule holds that any bill approved via the fast-track process can’t add to the deficit outside a 10-year budget window. The JCT has already found that the Senate bill would generate a surplus in its 10th year because it has set several tax breaks to expire. Only with Voodoo economics. Not in the real world.
