Critical Senate vote today. Action needed. (LCAction)

December 1, 2017

Today, the Senate is expected to vote on the proposed tax overhaul. While GOP leadership believe they have enough votes for passage, several sticking points remain for three senators. Here is why the tax package is in jeopardy of passage, as reported by The Hill:

"To appease Sens. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) and Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), [Senator] McConnell would have to reduce the total size of the $1.4 trillion tax package by $350 billion to $450 billion. But that approach isn't sitting well with many Republican senators.

McConnell also could seek to win over Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) by eliminating the deduction big companies known as C corporations receive for state and local taxes."

Additionally, Senate Democrats are also using procedural hurdles to derail the bill in order to get it sent back to committee.

As Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wrote in a press release:

"This is our once-in-a-generation opportunity to take more money out of Washington's pocket and put more money into the pockets of hardworking families. We can't let partisanship distract us from delivering real relief to the middle class. And we won't.
 
"First and foremost, the tax-reform proposal before us today is good for families….

Second, the plan is good for small businesses and job creators… It will also make it easier for other businesses to bring jobs and investments home.
 
And third, this legislation helps low- and middle-income families by repealing Obamacare's burdensome individual mandate tax. This is a good bill. And by overhauling our tax code, we can provide much-needed support to the men and women who sent us here."


As I have said before, the bill is not perfect, but it's the best tax reform initiative we've seen since the Reagan administration.
