The chairman of the House Freedom Caucus posted on social media his satisfaction with today’s vote in the House to approve the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, 227-203, a significant reworking of the federal tax code and the eighth largest tax cut in U.S. history.
“The Senate will pass the bill later this evening, and following that, it will go to the President’s desk as soon as tonight,” said Rep. Mark R. Meadows (R.-N.C.).
The bill before both chambers is the compromise crafted by the conference committee made up of delegates from the House and the Senate, who were tasked with reconciling the differences between the bills each chamber had previously passed. The conference committee has the authority to write a completely new bill from scratch, unless the conferees have specific instructions from their chamber.
Today, we're giving the American people their money back. We're making American businesses more competitive. And we’re finally igniting the kind of economic growth that every American deserves.

Once each chamber passes the conference-produced bill, it is sent to the president.
Meadows said the victory of President Donald J. Trump’s tax bill is a promise kept to the American people.
“The forgotten men and women of our country voted to elect President Trump and a Republican Congress to fix our broken tax code that taxes Americans too highly, ships their jobs overseas, and directly undermines the fundamental principles that make America great,” he said.
“All of that changes today,” the congressman said.
“We’re giving the American people their money back. We’re making the country more competitive for job creation and wage growth. And we’re igniting the kind of economic growth that every American deserves,” he said. “Business as usual is over.”
Pelosi May Try to Impeach President Trump AGAIN For Nominating a SCOTUS Judge Before Election
Turning impeachment into a partisan joke.
Nancy Pelosi refused to rule out trying to impeach President Donald Trump AGAIN if he nominates a Supreme Court justice to replace the recently deceased Ruth Bader Ginsberg before the November election.
Pelosi was speaking to corporate news operative George Stephanopoulos on Sunday.

“Well, we have our options… We have arrows in our quiver that I’m not about to discuss right now.” Pelosi was speaking about the possibility of impeaching Attorney General Bill Barr as well as Trump, who has increasingly become a source of extreme frustration for D.C. liberals who desire a Justice Department beholden to their policy priorities.
President Trump has confirmed that he plans on nominating a Justice to fill the vacancy, revealing he’s planning on selecting a woman for the court seat at a North Carolina rally over the weekend.
If Trump nominates a justice who is confirmed and goes on to secure a second term in the November presidential election, a hypothetical second impeachment proceeding could set up a truly hilarious scenario. Democrats would be trying to impeach a President who just secured victory in a democratic election, truly going above and beyond in trying to override the decision of the people.
Perhaps the impeachment powers of the House of Representatives are destined to become merely another partisan, political trick utilized by the Democratic Party against any Republican President. This could basically turn the American political system into a de facto parliamentary system in which the opposition party seeks to impeach the head of state on a routine, political basis.
