Sorry for the loss of time on this.
You can read about the process involved at:
The Senate has yet to vote on its own bill and its bill is significantly different from the House version, so even if they do pass something it will
have to go to reconciliation. As its worked out in reconciliation, the changes made will probably kill the bill in the House, i.e., either the
Freedom Caucus or the Tea Party will block it. As reconciled, it probably won't pass the Senate either; there's already, I think, 3 or 4 Senators
that won't even approve the Senates' first version, and that will go up after a reconciliation.
We'll know more this coming week, but its highly doubtful the Senate can pass their own version. McCain won't approve it; you can read the doom this
bill faces at:
You can read about the differences between the two versions at:
The real problem is time. If they can't get this done before year end, it won't happen until sometime in 2018, if at all and that's because 2018 is
the Mid-Term elections and they'll be loath to pass anything at that point.
Honestly, for the sake of the Stock Market, I really, really hope I'm wrong, but I doubt it.
