From The Hill:
Senate Republicans defeated a push by Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) to delay consideration of the GOP tax bill until Monday.
Senators voted 48-52 on the motion to adjourn, falling short of the simple majority needed to stall the legislation.
The motion was widely expected to fail, as it was similar to several attempts by Democrats this week to send the bill back to committee.
“Because the bill was given to lobbyists to read and change before senators saw it, and because the bill was given to us on a few hours’ notice and has not been read fully or considered fully by a single senator, I move we adjourn until Monday so we can first read and then clean up this awful piece of legislation,” Schumer said.
