President Trump notched his first major policy win with tax reform last week. Can he use the momentum from that win to push his policies through in 2018, or will Democrats stand in his way?
Amanda Marcotte, Politics Writer at Salon, thinks Republicans will regret their decision on tax reform. She says it was a largely unpopular bill that will make it difficult for the GOP to maintain its stronghold on both chambers of Congress going into the 2018 midterms.
Now that tax reform has been decided on, Marcotte believes Democrats will focus their attention towards DACA. She says that immigration is the next big policy battle brewing in Washington. With Doug Jones joining the Senate in January, Democrats would only need to sway two Republican Senators to push a policy through.
