Taking the border adjustment tax and business interest changes off the table leaves the House GOP plan about $2 trillion in the hole, and "the Trump administration has taken more items off the table", too.
The onus is on the Republican Senators now.
After a brief respite, Trump is back on Twitter to defend himself from ... whoever it is that is out to get him this time.
"I think the concerns that he's had with the pace of the Senate has been longstanding", Spicer told me.
Now, with the nuclear option triggered for all presidential appointments, Trump set his sights on the legislative filibuster, which would mean any piece of legislation going through the Senate would just need 51 votes.
Senators say they're writing their own bill.

Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid eliminated the filibuster in 2013 to push through nominations from former President Barack Obama to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
Whatever dollar figure the Senate lands on will have to be negotiated with the House.
As CNN's Phil Mattingly notes, both health care and tax reform are being moved via reconciliation - a series of budgetary rules that forces everything passed under it to be directly related to the spending and expenditures of the federal government. Trump wants the legislative filibuster changed because a change is the only way that any of his legislation stands any chance of passage.
Trump tried to justify his fit by saying that Democrats would kill the filibuster too, but this is a statement that is easily proven false.
Which, of course, is a gross misunderstanding of the separation of powers, the history of the Senate and the current legislative processes governing tax reform and the American Health Care Act. Donald Trump doesn't seem to be one of them.
