Mitch McConnell: Tax bill is still a few votes short

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Tuesday he is still working to win over a few Republicans who are not on board yet with the Republican tax reform bill that is tentatively scheduled for a vote this week.

“We do have a few members who have concerns and we are trying to address them,” McConnell said. “And we know we will not be able to go forward until we get 50 people satisfied, and that’s what we’re working on.”

Senate Republicans met privately Tuesday with President Trump, who took questions from lawmakers for an hour, McConnell said.

On Monday, Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, said the Senate could vote to start debate on the tax measure as early as Wednesday.

    Another good reason to throw McConnell and all of the other GOP Establishment rino’s out of politics. If the people of America didn’t want something done to fix this country Clinton would have won. But she didn’t but we still have the traitors like McConnell, Ryan, Collins, Flake, McCain, Murkowski and Cochran to jerk us around. Should not take an act of Congress to get rid of these miserable excuses for representatives.
