Senate narrowly passes GOP tax cuts, sends back to House for one last vote

(Worthy News) – Senate Republicans passed a major overhaul of the tax code early Wednesday morning, bouncing the bill back to the House for one last vote Wednesday morning before it is sent to President Trump’s desk for his signature.

The bill passed 51 to 48, along party lines, with Vice President Mike Pence presiding. Republican John McCain missed the vote while recuperating in Arizona.

With the Senate’s vote, passage of the $1.5 trillion tax cut is all but complete. The House voted Tuesday afternoon for essentially the same plan to reduce business and individual taxes. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More…) ]
