If your Friday nights are as scintillating as mine, you’re watching the Senate on C-SPAN2 and glued to Twitter, waiting for the vote on the $1.5 trillion tax cut plan, the massive transfer of wealth upward.
They haven’t voted yet, and as of now it’s not clear exactly when they vote but it still seems to be expected within a few hours. Just a few hours ago, they distributed the bill: 479 pages of pages that look like this:

Yep, hand-written scribbles that no one can read. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) tried to have that page inserted in the Congressional Record, but the staff said they couldn’t because they can’t read it.
This is how Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his fellow Republicans—including that great champion of “regular order” Sen. John McCain (R-AZ)—think the biggest experiment in social engineering and redistribution of wealth from the bottom up in a generation is supposed to work.
Keep on calling. Jam your senators’ phone lines at (202) 224-3121. Tell them to vote “no” on the Republican tax bill.
This is a total farce. They are handwriting updates to the handwritten stuff now!
UPDATE: Senate Republicans are so desperate to pass their tax bill tonight that they’re now making handwritten changes to their already handwritten changes… Seriously. pic.twitter.com/KQfW7bOyk1
