McCain Announces Support for Budget Resolution

Sen. John McCain buoyed GOP tax reform hopes by announcing his support for the Senate budget resolution, set for a vote later this week.  Debate on the resolution began midday Tuesday following a 50-47 vote, split along party lines, to move the process forward.  While Sen. John Thune expressed optimism toward passing the resolution, some Senate Republicans remain uncommitted, including Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins, Bob Corker, and Rand Paul, the latter of whom vehemently opposes the measure unless substantial spending cuts are included in its language.
