Yeah they are gonna pass it

It's been fun theater all week but here we are.
Momentum appears to be gathering behind the so-called "skinny repeal" of ObamaCare, which is expected to include a defunding of Planned Parenthood for one year and a repeal of ObamaCare's individual and employer mandates.

But GOP senators stressed after the closed door meeting that they view any legislation that they pass as a vehicle to get them to a conference committee to the House, where they could work out a deal on repealing ObamaCare.
Inevitably this will trigger another round of analysis from pundits trying to make "moderate Republicans" and "Jimmy Kimmel tests" into things that actually exist in real life.  All the while they've only had to ask one question.  Is this a gigantic tax cut for the wealthiest Americans? If so, then, yes, it will pass this Congress.
