    Indeed. I also have very little sympathy for them after what they did to the Democrats with the ACA. Tough crap, I say.

    Maybe this can serve as a cautionary tale about the problems that arise from hasty legislation.

    Wait. What? Sorry, I must have dozed off and dreamt I was in the 1950's.

    Every one will love that extra 100 a month in breaks but in four years and we collapse again they will all complain about the Democrats trying fix the problems republicans created.

    Republicans: "We've added $1.5 trillion to the debt in tax cuts for the rich, why won't Democrats help with the glitches we've created? They hate America!"

    Too bad. Should have crafted a decent piece of legislation through careful thought and analysis. They know they’ll lose everything in 2018 tho so they really had no choice.

    The irony of you pointing that out and Republicans twiddling their thumbs for several years and complaining in a thread about Democrats not willing to lift a finger to bail the Republicans out.

    Meh. As you sow, so shall you reap. No sympathy here.

    They can fix it on their own, or work with the Democrats to repeal and replace it with something that makes sense and doesn't add to the deficit.

    The republicans are essentially looting the US government for their rich friends. They’re never going to repeal it so that it’s debt-neutral.

    Then they can fix it on their own. There is always the nuclear option if they want it that badly. Otherwise they should have thought about it before rushing it through with parts of it handwritten.
