The Senate tax bill is steamrolling towards passage this afternoon, with members' concerns being addressed — except for the deficit hawks, who aren't getting extra debt-reducing provisions added to the bill. With Sen. Jeff Flake now saying he'll vote yes, the only debt hawk who may still vote no is Sen. Bob Corker.

What we're watching: Any last-minute Senate drama, along with the actual bill's release. But Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters the GOP has the votes.
