Republicans move closer to tax cuts

Hosted by

The House of Representatives approved a budget today that clears the way for major tax cuts. The measure that passed would allow a future tax bill to pass the Senate with a simple majority -- 50 votes. Republicans hold 52 seats in the Senate. But that doesn’t mean it’s going to be easy.
