Pity the poor Republican members of Congress! They didn’t read the bill. They don’t know what’s in it — save for a few cherry-picked talking points they’ve been given in order to sell the bill to their constituents. And they voted for it mostly because they were told to.

But when one doesn’t understand the bill, one can’t explain it, let alone sell it. And parroting a few talking points doesn’t get one very far.
