Speaking on ‘America Now’ Thursday night, host Buck Sexton warned Republican Representatives not to take an early victory lap after passing new tax cut legislation; reminding the GOP legislators of their “celebrations” after “repealing and replacing” Obamacare over the summer.
“The celebration may be a little premature. Considering this has to make its way through the Senate, which is going to be harder. No question it’s going to be tight in the Senate,” said Buck. “Senator Ron Johnson in Wisconsin has already said he’s not liking that this helps out corporations more then it helps people who file under individual proprietors.”
“That could be an issue. There’s also the state and local issue… For those of us who live in New York City or Los Angeles or anywhere in California, this is a problem. You’re going to get hit, you’re going to get hurt on this tax bill,” he added.
“Part of the discussion has to be that there are two bills right now. There’s what the House passed and what the Senate may pass, and they’re not exactly the same. There are differences and they’ll have to iron them out in conference afterwards,” Sexton said.
“So, we’re seeing the Congress excited about something, when I’m pretty sure Congress was really happy about all the Obamacare stuff? Busting out the champagne? Then the Senate –courtesy of Senator John McCain- did not actually push through anything,” he added. “I worry that the celebration may be a bit premature as I can see this thing running into some trouble again.”
