GOP Celebrate Holiday Legislative Win To Reboot Nation’s Tax Code

After a parliamentary hitch on Tuesday caused the U.S. House of Representatives to reboot a winning vote on a $1.5 trillion tax cut package, Arkansas’ entire congressional delegation on Wednesday (Dec. 20) celebrated a key political milestone that GOP party leaders and rank-and-file members say will lift the U.S. economy to new heights.

First, GOP leaders in the U.S. Senate celebrated Tuesday’s late-night passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 by a vote of 51 to 48, not needing any Democrat votes or the presence of fellow Republican Sen. John McCain, who is recuperating at home in Arizona following cancer treatment.

Arkansas Republican Sens. John Boozman and Tom Cotton cheered the Senate vote, calling the first overhaul of the nation’s tax code since Ronald Reagan a major victory for all American working families.    MORE
