Sasse the bottom line

Despite the reported tensions between Trump and McConnell, the White House issued a statement on Wednesday saying the two "remain united on many shared priorities, including ... constructing a southern border wall, and other important issues."

"This deal is likely sufficient to win the support of Corker, [Nebraska Sen. Ben] Sasse, and [Oklahoma Sen. James] Lankford. Flake may want the provision to be more aggressive. The key will be how conservative Senators respond, in particular, Senator Toomey and members of the Finance Committee. The House is not likely to be pleased with these details. Conservatives who have avoided criticizing the legislation throughout the entire process are absolutely livid this morning," wrote Clifton.
