Senate passes GOP tax bill after marathon voting session

The Senate early Saturday narrowly voted to pass an expansive $1.2 trillion tax reform bill.

The 51-49 vote on the nearly 500-page bill took place shortly before 2 a.m. after Democrats attempted a last-ditch amendment to stall the vote until Monday in order to read the bill.

Republican members broke out in enthusiastic applause as Vice President Mike Pence pounded the gavel and announce the bill’s passage at 1:51 a.m.
