House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer said the Republican party will suffer in the midterms as a result of their tax overhaul bill.
Republican House leadership is confident they have the votes to pass a four-bill “minibus” spending package before heading out for the August recess. They’re slated to leave town Friday, July 28. The minibus includes Defense, Energy-Water, Legislative Branch and Military Construction-VA funding (66 percent of discretionary spending for the government), as well as funding for a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico, according to Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy.
