Democratic senators are taking to Twitter with their outrage on how Republicans are moving ahead with a massive tax bill without sharing the final text so they can each read the bill. The main offenses, per the Democrats: scribbled changes and hundreds of pages they can't read through tonight.

Our thought bubble: Tweaks to legislative language during floor debate is nothing new, and Democrats are highlighting written edits to draft language. But though both parties have rushed legislation when they're in power, it's not normal for a bill of this magnitude to be voted on so soon after being released.

Bottom line: 51 Republican senators said they'd vote for the bill before they'd seen changes worth hundreds of billions of dollars.

Following positive vaccine news and the run-up in global equities punctuated last week by the Dow hitting 30,000 points, investors are again throwing caution to the wind and growing more uniform in their bets that stocks will continue to rise.

Between the lines: The resurgence of traders' risk appetite has some urging caution, as unanimity in either excitement or fear historically has proven to be a contrarian signal for the stock market.

Salesforce rolls the dice on Slack

Salesforce's likely acquisition of workplace messaging service Slack — not yet a done deal but widely anticipated to be announced Tuesday afternoon — represents a big gamble for everyone involved.

For Slack, challenged by competition from Microsoft, the bet is that a deeper-pocketed owner like Salesforce, with wide experience selling into large companies, will help the bottom line.

FBI stats show border cities are among the safest

U.S. communities along the Mexico border are among the safest in America, with some border cities holding crime rates well below the national average, FBI statistics show.

Why it matters: The latest crime data collected by the FBI from 2019 contradicts the narrative by President Trump and others that the U.S.-Mexico border is a "lawless" region suffering from violence and mayhem.
