With the tax reform vote looming, can the Right get enough support to pass the bill?

A vote on the Senate tax bill will likely come sometime this week. Can Republican leaders marshal enough votes to pass the legislation? A roundup of editorials Tuesday includes an explanation from Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul on why he is going to vote for the bill.

Opinions from the Right:

1.  Why I Plan to Vote for the Senate Tax Bill

From Sen. Rand Paul: The Kentucky senator said that the repeal of the Affordable Care Act individual mandate is one of the main reasons he will be voting for the tax bill.

2. The Latest Tax Cut Lie: The Senate Bill Will Hurt The Poor

From Investors Business Daily: If you look at the numbers you’ll see that the tax plan does offer relief to those in the lower income bracket.

3. Senate plan serves up lower tax bills. But fairness, not so easy.

From The Christian Science Monitor: Will the cuts pay for themselves? That case is hard to make.
