A revolt from two Republican senators concerned about the Child Tax Credit and the absence of two more Republican senators because of illness has injected fresh uncertainty into the GOP’s tax bill push.
The Senate was expected to vote first on the $1.5 trillion tax package, but that is now in doubt as GOP leaders aren’t absolutely sure they’ll have enough votes early next week to pass it.
Leaders have little room for error. The Christmas recess is fast approaching and soon they will see their Senate majority fall by one vote because Democrat Doug Jones won the Alabama special election on Tuesday.
Jones could be sworn into office as soon as Dec. 26, though it’s more likely that he will be seated after New Year’s Day.
