As 2017 winds down, United States politicians have turned their attention to long-promised tax reform. In the early morning hours of Saturday, Dec. 2, the Senate passed the GOP-proposed tax reform bill with a 51-49 vote. The bill received nearly unanimous Republican support, and zero Democratic support.
