Jason Riley on Tax Cuts: We’re Where the Health Care Bill Was When It Died

‘And what — it went over to the Senate where it died

WALLACE: A heated exchange between Senate Finance Committee Chair Orrin Hatch and Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio over who benefits from the Republican tax plan.

And we’re back now with the panel.

Well, Jason, where do you think the battle for tax reform stands right now, how much trouble is it in, in the Senate, and how do you see this playing out?

JASON RILEY, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: Well, it got to the House. We were expecting that to happen. And now we are where the health care debate was. And what — it went over to the Senate where it died.

Right now there are some concerns. You have a bunch of senators, from Ron Johnson, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, John McCain, Jeff Flake, are very skeptical of what they see right now. But we’re at the beginning of the process. Leadership thinks they can be won over, and that’s what they’re — they’re trying to do right now.
