Sen. Bob Corker announced late Friday afternoon that he would vote against the Senate version of the tax bill because of its impact on the federal deficit, making him the only declared GOP “no” vote on the tax overhaul.
It appeared that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had secured the votes of all other members of his conference.
“I am disappointed. I wanted to get to yes,” the Tennessee Republican said in a statement. “But at the end of the day, I am not able to cast aside my fiscal concerns and vote for legislation that I believe, based on the information I currently have, could deepen the debt burden on future generations.”[contentcards url=”http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/bob-corker-says-hell-vote-no-on-tax-bill-because-of-deficits/article/2642332″ target=”_blank”]
