Where the tips came from first, I have no idea. But without fanfare -- and you should perhaps take that as a clue -- the House Budget Committee has posted a 2,309 page bill (PDF) that purports to be the text of the upcoming reconciliation bill.

But almost as quickly, denials were being issued via Twitter that caused almost as much confusion as the raw text caused excitement.
So what's going on here?
