"If the party believes that black people are going to continue to, on their own, organize and show up and vote for Democrats without serious acknowledgment of our electoral importance, the party will be in for a rude awakening", Sanders said. It's the Republicans standing up and saying, "I just don't see how we're - there's no room here".

"Nobody is going to walk out of here with a plan that is their idea of perfection", Rooker said. Ryckman voted against the plan debated Tuesday night as he has on other plans. Supporters were only one vote shy of the 27 that would be needed to override a veto. During a hearing with the Finance Committee, Mulvaney said that the White House will now rely on static scoring to make a tax-reform bill revenue neutral.
