By Christmas? I am doubtful.
Based on what? I'm basing my view on the facts that:
* Both the Trump Administration and the Republicans who control Congress want this done by Christmas, and have promised that it will be.
* There are no insurmountable differences between the two bills.
* The Democrats have no way of blocking the process of which I'm aware.
What you are saying is kind of like 'Ok, we know there is a large animal outside the tent, we're eating bacon, and it's pawing at the door. We still have no reason to think it will come in here.'
I personally don't care if it passes this month vs. next month as it will affect me the same way. It's strictly my opinion, if I'm wrong oh well.
