The best thing going for Republicans right now is low expectations.

As the measure gets across the finish line, a flurry of fresh polling shows the bill is historically unpopular and becoming more so.

But here’s the truth: 8 in 10 Americans will pay lower taxes next year, according to the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center’s analysis of the final bill. Only 5 percent of people will pay more next year.

Paul Ryan says he has “no concerns whatsoever” about the bad polling because most people’s after-tax incomes will rise. “Results are going to make this popular,”

… it’s equally remarkable that not a single Democrat in either chamber voted for this, including all 10 of the senators up for reelection next year in states Trump won. “Democratic obstruction of middle-class tax reform will be our No. 1 issue going into next year’s elections,”
