Plus, Senator John McCain has flipped his view on the tax reform bill and will now vote "yes." As the Senate rushes to vote the bill through, some Republicans are still pushing back on the lack of a plan to safeguard the deficit.

In addition, Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin met with President Trump to express his concerns about pass-through entities. He's now expected to vote "yes" on the bill. The Republicans hope to have a version of the bill on President Trump's desk next week.
