BREAKING: Senate Passes Trump Tax Bill 51-48 in Midnight Showdown *Update* House Passes Bill in Re-vote; Bill Moves to POTUS’s Desk

The Senate approved Trump’s tax bill 51-48 in a midnight showdown. McCain was absent from the vote.

This is the biggest tax overhaul in 30 years.

Earlier Tuesday, the GOP tax bill passed the House on a 227-203 vote.

Prior to the House passing the Republican’s tax plan, a female protester crashed the House gallery and removed her top. 

Lovely.

Because Democrat hacks complained about two minor provisions in the bill, the House will re-vote on tax bill Wednesday.

The Senate moved full speed ahead with a midnight showdown.

McCain was absent due to health complications from radiation. Vice President Mike Pence was on deck just in case there needed to be a ‘tie breaker’ vote,Fox News’ Chad Pergram reported.

Of course protesters showed up screaming “Kill the bill, don’t kill us!” Pence gavels them down and demands protesters be removed.

Wow! RINO Flake voted ‘yes’!

The Senate approved Trump’s tax bill 51-48, Pergram reported.

More on the tax bill via NBC:

The Senate voted along party lines after midnight Tuesday to pass a sweeping $1.5 trillion tax bill that slashes tax rates for corporations, provides new breaks for private businesses and reorganizes the individual tax code.

[…]

The GOP bill lowers individual tax rates, including the top bracket to 37 percent from 39.6, while doubling the standard deduction and replacing personal exemptions with a $2,000 partly refundable child tax credit. It eliminates various deductions while limiting others on state and local taxes and mortgage interest. It also exempts larger inheritances from the estate tax, doubling the thresholds to $11 million for individuals and $22 million for married couples.

The bill also has significant implications for health care, where it abolishes the Affordable Care Act’s penalty for Americans who don’t purchase insurance.
