Two GOP holdouts say they’ll vote for tax bill
Sens. Ron Johnson and Steve Daines are going to vote yes on the Senate GOP tax plan after receiving assurances there will be an increase to the deduction for pass-through businesses, according to CNBC. The amount of income business owners can deduct will jump from 17.4%, as was drafted in the original Senate bill, to 23%.
Why it matters: It means Sen. Susan Collins may be the deciding factor for the tax bill after Sen. John McCain hopped on board earlier this week. The bill is expected to move to a vote later today.
