Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., said his vote supporting the Republican tax cuts could be one of the worst votes in his career if a Congressional Budget Office prediction holds true, The Hill reported.
"If it ends up costing what has been laid out here, it could well be one of the worst votes I've made," Corker said during a Senate Budget Committee hearing, regarding the estimate that the GOP tax cuts would add $1.9 trillion to deficits over a decade.
"I hope that is not the case, I hope there's other data to assist, whether it's jobs or growth or whatever," Corker said.
The senator voted for the final bill after initially holding out over complaints that the bill added to the deficit.
The CBO estimate said the bill would cost $1.9 trillion through 2028, which includes the interest costs of servicing the debt, The Hill reported.
Corker, who is retiring at the end of his term, said his best vote was on the Budget Control Act that limited domestic spending, The Hill reported.
