Will The Tax Bill Pass The Senate? McConnell Thinks He's Got The Votes



Drama has been broiling in the Senate over whether the massive overhaul to the nation's tax code will pass. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell thinks he has the votes on tax reform, which is supposed to be voted on later Friday, Dec. 1. Per the Washington Post, no GOP senators currently have expressed opposition to the bill. Forty-nine of the 52 Republican senators are solid yes votes. The final three have signaled they have concerns about the bill and it remains unclear where they stand.

The tax bill requires a 51-vote majority. It would take three dissenting votes by GOP senators to outweigh Vice President Mike Pence, who can serve as a tie-breaker vote for the right. Many eleventh-hour deals have been in the works to secure the votes of GOP holdouts. On Friday, Arizona Senator Jeff Flake announced he'd be voting yes, after withholding support over a lack of protection for Dreamers, those who were brought to the U.S. as children and receive protection under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

More to come.
