Sherrod Brown really takes the fight to Orrin Hatch here. No Trumpian namecalling or low blows. Instead focusing on the GOP helping only the ultra-rich. Judging by how mad Hatch got, Brown hit a soft spot. pic.twitter.com/WxDFb8ipHB

Orrin don’t care, he’s not running for re-election anyways. Just as well the Repubs can shove him in front of the cameras to act all indignant about Sherrod Brown telling the truth about what Orrin’s GOP buddies — or, more accurately, their funders — want to do to the rest of us.
As we wait for the late-Friday news dump, what else is on the agenda for the day?
House Republicans are about to pass a bill that raises taxes on millions of families to finance a tax cut for millionaires and nobody’s even paying attention because so much else is happening.

It's 11:21pm. Most Americans are asleep. But the GOP members of the Senate Finance Committee just rammed through their tax bill on a partisan vote, under cover of darkness. This process is an embarrassment.

The fact that so few R's voted against the House tax plan tells me they either have given up surviving 2018, or think their only hope is a massive infusion of donor cash.
