A vote on the Senate tax bill will likely come sometime this week. Can Republican leaders marshal enough votes to pass the legislation? A roundup of editorials Tuesday includes an explanation from Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul on why he is going to vote for the bill.
Opinions from the Right:
From Sen. Rand Paul: The Kentucky senator said that the repeal of the Affordable Care Act individual mandate is one of the main reasons he will be voting for the tax bill.
From Investors Business Daily: If you look at the numbers you’ll see that the tax plan does offer relief to those in the lower income bracket.
The GOP tax bill will not produce enough economic growth to pay for itself, which will add to the federal deficit, according to the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget. https://t.co/cJ1c8Iv3LU— Axios (@axios) November 27, 2017
From The Christian Science Monitor: Will the cuts pay for themselves? That case is hard to make.
