The Senate passed the GOP-sponsored Tax Cuts and Jobs Act early Wednesday morning, amid outbursts of jeers from the Senate gallery and cheers on the Senate floor.
The vote was tallied at 12:42 a.m., passing 51-48.
Senate clerk has read 51 Republican "aye"s in favor of the tax bill. That's all she wrote.

And we have another disturbance in the Senate galleries, as the tax cut vote continues. Pence calls for order

What a disgrace. That's what this bill is. It's an absolute disgrace. There is no reason for a single middle-class family to pay more while every single corporation pays less.
