RUSH TRANSCRIPT:

COLBERT: "Meanwhile, the trump Administration is veering dangerously close to accomplishment. Because the GOP tax bill looks like it will pass. Yes. After months of -- I know, but after months of clenching and pushing looks like the Republicans may finally pinch out a steaming loaf of legislation. The nonpartisan congressional budget office found the Senate version of these cuts would create a $1.4 trillion hole in the budget. I don't even cut everyone's taxes equally. By 2027, people making 40 to $50,000 a year will pay a combined 5.3 billion more in taxes while the group earning 1 million or more will get a 5.8 billion dollar cut.
