The GOP Leadership has announced the following schedule for Wednesday, November 14: The House will meet at 12:00 p.m. for legislative business.  The House is expected to begin consideration of H.R. 6784 – Manage our Wolves Act (Rep. Duffy – Natural Resources) (Subject to a Rule).
“Supporters of the [Republican] tax cuts repeatedly claimed the bill would increase economic growth enough to offset the decline in tax receipts… Despite a remarkably strong economy, the fiscal health of the United States is deteriorating fast, as revenues have declined sharply. The federal budget deficit — the gap between what the government collects in revenues and what it spends — rose to $779 billion in the 2018 fiscal year, which ended Sept. 30. That was a 17 percent increase from the prior year.”
