337 DAYS TO THE 2018 MID-TERM ELECTION

Now that the Senate has passed their version of the horrendous tax bill, it's back to the House. The House can choose to adopt the bill as is and push for a quick vote, or it can send the bill to committee, which has the potential to push our fight into the new year.
 
Our local protests and calls to Issa really matter this week!
"California House members are the most persuadable Republicans because it is a tax increase for CA." - Lawrence O'Donnell tweet on December 3

Here are 7 differences requiring reconciliation between the GOP House and Senate tax bills.
