Republicans Are Waking Up To The Best News They’ve Seen In Decades!

In the early hours of Saturday morning, Republicans in the Senate scored enough votes to pass their cornerstone tax reform legislation.

The bill narrowly passed, 51 to 49 votes.

It will be heading to a conference committee for members of the House and Senate to work out differences between the two bills before it is sent over to the President’s desk.

Per Fox News:

The U.S. Senate voted just before 2 a.m. ET Saturday to pass a sweeping tax overhaul worth roughly $1.4 trillion, putting the Trump White House a big step closer to its first major legislative victory – and many Americans closer to a tax cut.

The vote was 51-49, with Republican Bob Corker of Tennessee the only member of the GOP to side with the Democrats in opposition.

Shortly after the bill’s passage, President Trump took to Twitter to congratulate Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senator Orrin Hatch for “shepherding” the bill to its passage.

He tweeted, “We are one step closer to delivering MASSIVE tax cuts for working families across America. Special thanks to @SenateMajLdr Mitch McConnell and Chairman @SenOrrinHatch for shepherding our bill through the Senate. Look forward to signing a final bill before Christmas!”

Moments ago, Trump congratulated all Republicans in the House and Senate.

He said, “Biggest Tax Bill and Tax Cuts in history just passed in the Senate. Now these great Republicans will be going for final passage. Thank you to House and Senate Republicans for your hard work and commitment!”
