Senate GOP All In On Tax Bill

The Senate GOP is now united in support of the party’s tax plan.

Senators Rubio (R-FL) and Scott (R-SC) announced their support after securing an increase in child tax credit refundability, which they have been pushing for throughout the bill’s finalization process. This was followed by a surprise announcement from Senator Corker – the sole Republican senator to vote against the previous bill — that he would support the final product, even though it still contains the deficit effects that he opposes.

If no senators change their minds between now and the day of the vote, GOP leadership can pass the bill even if Senators McCain and Cochran are not able to attend due to medical treatment.
