---As a good portion of Americans were sleeping, Senate Republicans passed a $1.5 trillion tax bill in the wee hours of Saturday morning.
The bill squeaked through the Senate in a 51 to 49 vote, almost entirely along party lines. Sen. Bob Corker (Tenn.) was the only Republican who — along with all Democrats — voted against the bill.
Corker, who is not seeking reelection, expressed concerns over the bill contributing to the growing national debt. But to hear most GOP lawmakers tell it, the legislation was a victory to be cheered and, at last, an achievement to be flaunted heading into next year’s midterm elections.
Democrats told a different story leading up to the vote — in part because, for much of the day, there was no bill to be seen.
