    as is the house.

    If they voted for a clean debt raise, they would lose the medical device tax delay. Plus the Collins deal is for a shorter time period.

      least carried into the room, namely a means testing procedure for ACA coverage for those tax credits which would stop implementation of the plan until they could program it in, and fix the bugs. Another way to stop ACA dead until the next round of R holdups.

      And don't assume that the House Rs are done. They will still blue slip anything that comes from the Senate if they don't like it enough, and now their pride is so deeply dug in that they don't care what the effect is on anyone else in the world of what they do for that pride. They might refuse even a good deal until more harm is done just to show they still have some power to wave.
