Tevi Troy: A big, formal conference, where you'd have to have Democrats and Republicans represented, is probably unlikely at this point. I think you're going to have some kind of closed-door conference, secret room conference, where they hammer out agreement on the major issues and decide which way they're going to go in the next couple of weeks.
Tevi Troy: The Senate does have a higher threshold. There's a history. It doesn't matter whether Republicans control the Senate, or Democrats control the Senate. There's a history of the Senate version usually winning out with one or two high-profile concessions going to the House. That's what I suspect will happen here, after a lot of chest thumping.
