The House passed the Senate's budget resolution by a vote of 216-212 this morning, paving the way for the GOP's tax plan over the coming weeks.

What's next: Paul Ryan has promised a blazing fast timeline for passing a Republican tax plan, hoping to get it done by Thanksgiving — but promising earlier this month that he'd keep the House in session through Christmas if necessary.

Republicans voting no: The GOP lost 20 representatives on the vote — with a large portion from high-tax states. They're concerned about the tax plan's removal of the state and local tax deduction, which would disproportionately affect their constituents.

Why it matters: The airstrike was the first overt military action by the U.S. in the Middle East since Biden assumed office, and one that Israeli officials see as a positive signal about the new administration's posture toward Iran.

The sovereign state of Facebook vs. the world

Facebook's 3 billion monthly active users, its mountain of money and its control over the flow of information all put the company on an equal footing with governments around the world — and, increasingly, it's getting into fights with them.

Why it matters: Facebook's power alarms governments fearful that the tech giant could tilt the political scales inside their borders, and regulators around the world are seeking ways to rein the company in.
