Republicans across the nation are cheering over the results of the Alabama senate race. No, you didn’t read this wrong. Sure, Democrats are celebrating over the election victory of one of their own for the first time in 25 years. But it should be no surprise to learn that key Republicans are also pleased with the outcome.
The reason for GOP rejoicing is that they have thrown off the albatross of Roy Moore from around their necks. Republicans will no longer have to answer, month after month, every question from the press that begins with: “Now about Roy Moore?”
Now that the Republican tax reform acts have passed both the US House and the US Senate, the focus turns to the issue of which provisions are ultimately adopted by the conferees and, of course, the US Congress.
With President Donald Trump hours away from a major victory in the US Senate on the issue of tax reform, the full court press to defeat it or pass it, is on.
