Paul Ryan Went On TV Today To Defend GOP Tax Bill—It Didn't Go So Well

By Mark Pygas

The Republican-controlled House of Representatives is set to vote on President Donald Tump's tax bill for a second time due to a procedural foul-up, though the outcome is expected to be the same as Tuesday's vote. The senate has also passed the bill, with 41-48 votes, which will make the vote President Trump's first major legislative victory in office. 

Opponents of the bill say the legislation will help corporations and the wealthy on the backs of the middle class. According to a poll by Quinnipiac University, only 25 percent of Americans approve of the bill, and 61 percent believe that the bill mainly helps the wealthy.
