Senate Budget Committee votes 12-11 to advance tax bill

The Senate Budget Committee has voted to advance the Senate tax bill by a 12-11 margin, with only Republicans voting in favor. GOP leadership hopes to bring the bill up for a vote before the full Senate by the end of the week.

Why it matters: The 12-11 vote was just a procedural move, but it was a critical hurdle given that some Republicans had expressed concerns about the bill. Two Republicans who had been holding out, Bob Corker and Ron Johnson, both voted "yes."

1. Next...

we'll get a look at what they advanced?

"The Budget Committee combined the tax bill with a measure that allows drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge."

It's like they are deliberately assuring not one, single Democratic vote.
