    Id rather drink weed killer than not pass this bill.

    which isn't even the oddest part of this quote.

    Senator John Kennedy, Republican of Louisiana, said he found no broad meaning in the election results but said voters were counting on lawmakers to pass a tax overhaul and improve the economy.
    “The Republicans are in charge, and we promised to fix it, and we have to go fix it,” he said. “If we don’t fix it, then the American people are entitled to say, ‘Well, you know, how’d you people make it through the birth canal, for God’s sakes?’ And I don’t blame them. They ought to be asking that question.”
    “We’ve got to go pass this bill,” he added. “I’d rather drink weed killer than not pass this bill.”

    give a huge tax break to the rich, while only some middle class folks may benefit, while getting rid of local and state tax deductions. A bunch of bad ideas given how Republican's got thumped last night. That's why this particular quote. It perfectly describes the Republican's attitude. Which is being so desperate to put a "win" on the table they're willing to piss voters off in the process (as long as they keep the big donors happy). Well that, plus it's a hell of a thing to read first thing in the morning.

    You're welcome.

    There is no huge tax break for the rich, those are liberal lies.

    I wasn't addressing the article, I was addressing your comments which are part of the OP.
