The tax vote at 1:36 a.m.
Early Saturday morning, the Senate passed its version of tax reform -- complete with a repeal of the individual health insurance mandate, giveaways to corporations and millionaires, changes that would hurt low- and moderate-income families, and handwritten amendments to a bill that no one had the time to read.
It's not over yet, but it'll be tough to stop this bill. Here's what's next: The House and Senate have to pass an identical bill for it to go to the president's desk. Either the House and Senate each have to pass a compromise, or every representative has to go on the record on the Senate's version of the bill. Either way, we have another shot to block this legislation before it becomes law.
Some members of Congress are waiting to see whether there's a huge outcry around this bill. Together, we need to show Congress that harmful policies are bad politics.
