Quoting from the article linked:

"In short, there is very little to suggest Democrats benefit politically from sitting out this tax debate—beyond their saying so. And they’ve certainly done themselves no favors from a policy perspective. Had they been willing to negotiate, they likely could have spared their high-tax states the new limits that are coming on state and local tax deductions. They might have limited cuts to, or bracket expansions of, the top personal rate—given that President Trump is himself squishy on that issue. They might have increased the tax penalty on companies that are repatriating money from overseas. They might have killed a provision that will finally allow drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge—included to court the vote of Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski. Instead, they’ve got bupkus."

If Dems were willing to compromise Pubs wouldn't have had to sweeten the pot and offer Murkowski ANWR drilling.

Will Dems come to the table when Congress gets together to merge the Senate and House bills?
