via Republican tax plan clears hurdle in Senate; fight erupts over spending – AOL News

WASHINGTON, Nov 28 (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump’s push for a big package of tax cuts moved past a potential obstacle on Tuesday as a Senate panel approved the measure despite lingering concerns from some Republican members.

The 12-11 party-line vote in the Senate Budget Committee, held as protestors shouted in the background in a Capitol Hill hearing room, cleared the way for the full Senate to vote on the bill.

That vote could happen as early as Thursday and would give Republicans powerful momentum for their top legislative priority.
