They can’t help themselves:
House Republicans on Monday unveiled a tax package that would fix some technical errors in the tax law they passed last year, reform parts of the Internal Revenue Service, and provide tax relief for victims of the California wildfires and other natural disasters.
The legislation also would extend about 30 tax breaks that are regularly renewed but are at risk of expiring, and the bill aims to make it easier for small employers to provide retirement plans to their workers.
Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Tex.), chair of the Ways and Means Committee, released the nearly 300-page bill Monday night during Congress’s lame-duck session. The proposal would require Democratic votes in the Senate to be signed into law, and it faces an uncertain fate given a crunch of other issues facing Congress before it adjourns in December.
“The policy proposals in this package have support of Republicans and Democrats in both chambers,” Brady said in a statement. “I look forward to swift action in the House to send these measures to the Senate.”
They crafted it with no Democratic input, no one has read the bill, so I am sure it is just fixes. Right?
They can fix the Republican mistakes next spring when the adults are back in charge.
