The Rundown - Weds 11/29/17: Tax reform; Dems vs GOP on "family values"

Before we get into the heavier stuff:  At 8:06 AM we'll talk with the Denver Post's fine art writer Ray Rinaldi about how Denver's hotels become great places to see art, including lots of art by Colorado artists. Or you can go to someone's garage:

North Korea fired a missile Tuesday afternoon (US time) which went further than any prior DPRK missile test although it appears to have broken up on re-entry. At 6:15 AM we'll talk about it with Harlan Ullman, for many years an adviser to America's military leaders and to some of the most important foreign policy think-tanks. 

Here's Dr. Ullman's new book: "Anatomy of Failure: Why America Loses Every War It Starts"

The first public statement by a former House staffer about his history of bad behavior by "icon" John Conyers. The guy has to go.

And I wonder if this story is going anywhere:http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/rep-raul-grijalva-former-staffer-agreed-to-severance-package-to-settle-claims-of-hostile-work-environment-report/article/2641921

 

The GOP tax bill cleared a key Senate committee vote yesterday but it faces being made both better and worse in order to satisfy a handful of dissident Republicans:

I don’t like this idea at all. Who would really argue that the right response to slow economic growth in the future is to raise taxes (and thereby slow the economy more)? But this sort of change is likely to be added in to the bill to get Bob Corker's vote. If it gets taken out of conference committee bill and brought back to Senate, I wonder what Corker would then do.
