Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that the next votes on the tax bill will take place at 11 a.m. on Friday. Debate will continue tonight.
Why it matters: It's a clear sign that Senate Republican leaders don't have the votes to pass the bill yet. They'll have to get a deal with Republicans who are worried about the bill's impact on the deficit, now that a proposed fiscal “trigger" is off the table
