In Washington, D.C., Republicans’ legislation to overhaul the U.S. tax code in order to shower billions of dollars upon the richest Americans and major corporations appears to be hanging by a thread. Two Republican senators—Marco Rubio of Florida and Mike Lee of Utah—have threatened to vote against the legislation, unless the child tax credit is expanded. Republicans are pushing for a vote as early as next week. Vice President Mike Pence has canceled a trip to Middle East so he can be in Washington, D.C., in case he’s required to cast the tie-breaking vote.
