Summary

Republicans have pointed to dynamic scoring to argue that tax cuts pay for themselves at least in part, while Democrats have been more concerned about tax cuts’ impact on the debt.House Minority Leader Nancy PelosiNancy Patricia D'Alesandro PelosiWhite House: Democrats 'not serious' about reopening government Trump suggests Vatican proves border wall is moral On The Money: Second White House meeting scheduled as shutdown drags toward week three | McConnell suggests shutdown could last weeks | Trump blames stock market slide on 'glitch' MORE (D-Calif.), who is expected to win the Speakership, hailed the rules package in a statement.“By an historic ten million vote margin, the American people went to the polls and asked for a professionally run Congress that would be more transparent, ethical and committed to debating and advancing good ideas no matter where they come from,” she said.“Our rules package will deliver that Congress, ushering in a new era of clean government that will honor the consensus of the American people — restoring the People’s House to the people.”Besides budget-related rules, the package also aims to advance Democrats priorities by creating a select committee relating to climate change, authorizing the House to intervene in court cases challenging the legality of ObamaCare and directing the House’s general counsel to look into options for responding to Trump administration rulemaking on work requirements for food stamp recipients.The package includes changes to the legislative process, such as a provision that requires the text of the bill to be public for a full 72 hours before the House votes on it.
