The President returned to Washington after the Thanksgiving break with his eye on pulling the tax reform legislation over the finish line. As Senate Republicans look for ways to fail, the President has been working as hard as he can to get this thing passed and notch another major accomplishment on his first-year record.
As The Hill reports, there are several Republicans who are still wavering on passing the bill:
There are several Republicans in the Senate who have yet to say whether or not they will vote for the measure, including Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine), Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), according to ABC News.
Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) said last week he would not vote for the bill.
There is nothing more aggravating than a lone Senator who withholds support over a single line item. The country is basically held hostage to the demands of this small handful of people. If the Senate screws up tax reform, or takes the teeth out of it, then the GOP can kiss goodbye to any hope of success in 2018.
America voted for tax relief, time for Republicans to deliver, and deliver big.
