Here's how the Senate GOP tax bill will critically hurt poor people

According to the report, that's because the Senate Republican tax plan would eliminate the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate - a move the CBO says would raise premiums by 10% a year and cause the poor to be unable to afford insurance.

The White House called the committee action "an important step toward passing historic tax relief and reform". "They want to see (tax cuts) happen".

Multiple other senators have expressed similar concerns to those of Corker and Johnson. He argued that those businesses got worse treatment under the plan than corporations, which would see their tax rate chopped to 20 percent from 35 percent. He wants further cuts for "pass-through" businesses that do not directly pay income taxes but instead send their earnings to their owners to be taxed as individual income.

A change to the state and local tax deduction: One of the thorniest issues during the House debate on the TCJA concerned the state and local tax deduction, which allows households to deduct state taxes from their federal tax bill. He has sought a "backstop" that would create automatic tax increases if the tax bill doesn't spur strong economic growth as Republicans have promised.

The CBO also estimated that the GOP tax bill could trigger automatic cuts worth $136 billion from mandatory spending in 2018, including $25 billion in Medicare cuts, if Congress doesn't find another way to offset its deficit increases. The Senate plans to hold its own vote later this week, which would be followed by a bicameral conference to reconcile the two versions.

U.S. President Donald Trump, surrounded by empty chairs marked for U.S. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who chose not to meet with Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), speaks with reporters at the White House in Washington, U.S. November 28, 2017.

The Alexander-Murray bill has enough support in the Senate but has been blocked by GOP leadership. Details were not immediately available.

Trump is expected to address GOP senators in a closed-door lunch meeting in the Capitol, hours before the Senate Budget Committee is scheduled to take a critical vote to advance the $1.4 trillion tax bill to the Senate floor.

Democratic Senator Jeff Merkley told MSNBC that the Corker concession was "an absolute gimmick" that could be undermined later.

A temporary spending bill expires December 8 and another is needed to prevent a government shutdown. Democrats hope to use their leverage on the budget issue to renew protections for young immigrants who entered the country illegally as children.
