(Worthy News) - Senate Republicans on Wednesday plan to advance a $1.4 trillion tax cut bill by voting to begin debate on the measure that looks likely to pass in the coming days.

But Republicans were still making changes to the bill Tuesday to shore up enough support for final passage of their tax code overhaul, even after they got a boost when two GOP holdouts helped advance the bill out of the Senate Budget Committee. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
