Tonight’s question, greetings, and banter here. (More)

Today Consumer Finance Protection Bureau chief Richard Cordray announced that he will resign at the end of the month and most Ohio Democratic leaders say he will run for governor next year. Also, Sen. Ron Johnson (D-WI) said he will vote against the GOP tax giveaway and Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) warned that repealing the Obamacare individual mandate would cancel any tax cut benefit for many working families, while Vox’s Dylan Scott and Sarah Kliff report that adding the individual mandate repeal basically makes working family health care cuts pay for rich people’s and business’ tax cuts. And 26-year-old Allison Ikley-Freeman won a special election for an Oklahoma state senate seat from Tulsa County, making that the fourth Oklahoma state legislative seat flipped to Democrats this year. Will the GOP’s tax bill help build a Democratic wave for 2018?
