WASHINGTON — Republicans were touting plans Sunday to vote on a measure this week that would overhaul the nation’s tax system and give them a much-needed legislative victory as Congress wraps up the year.
Sen. John Cornyn, one of the Senate Republican leaders, said he’s confident the Senate will approve the tax bill and vote on it as soon as Tuesday.
“This is good news for the American people,’’ Cornyn of Texas said on ABC’s This Week. “We’re going to get the economy roaring back again and improve pay, increase jobs and make America more competitive in the global economy as well as simplifying the tax code and giving everybody in every tax bracket a tax cut.’’
Passage of the tax bill would be a legislative win for Republicans, including President Trump, who have vowed to make it a priority this year. Trump has said he had hoped to sign the tax bill by Christmas.
