In a controversial decision that highlights the extreme party differences in the U.S. Republicans in the Senate are preparing to block a $78 billion tax cut plan. Bipartisan backing for the package, which includes corporate and child tax benefits, has been met with fierce resistance from Senate Republicans led by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his deputy, John Thune. The GOP’s hesitation to back the bill is due to their desire to hold out for more significant tax reductions for corporations if they win a majority in November, in addition to worries about how the law would affect the next elections.
