The Republican tax bill cleared a major hurdle on the path to become law. President Trump visited Capitol Hill to rally last minute support before the Senate Budget Committee voted on whether to push the bill through to a full Senate vote. After the meeting, key Republican holdouts — Sen. Ron Johnson and Sen. Bob Corker — helped push the bill through.


Jim Braude was joined by former communications director for Governor Deval Patrick, Jesse Mermell, and Joe Malone, a former Massachusetts state treasurer and current Trump supporter to discuss.
