Liberals are in total freakout mode this morning as the Senate passed their version of a tax cut bill last night. Unless the House passes a new bill that matches the Senate plan, the next step is a conference committee where differences get hammered out. The House and Senate will pass new bills that match and President Trump will sign it.
Senator Rand Paul was a tough sell on tax reform, but he supported the final Senate version and voted affirmatively to support it. Here is what he said:
While I still would have preferred larger cuts, this bill provides a foundation on which to continue building. Today marks a victory for giving the American people back more of their own money and reforming an archaic tax code. https://t.co/nEgDcynrdb

Senator Paul framing this as a foundation makes sense. The tax code will still be a complex mess even after the passage of this bill. Still, the collective freak out the left is having shows the GOP did the right thing.
