Sen. Portman: Both Parties 'Want to Get to Yes' on Tax Reform

("CBS This Morning")

Republicans and Democrats both "want to get to yes" on the Senate's tax reform bill, Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, said Tuesday.

"I think about 90 percent of Republicans who've said they are supportive of it, in fact strongly supportive, and then we've got some folks who are still looking at various aspects, but they all want to get to yes, they all want middle class tax cuts, they all want simplification, they all want the pro-growth policies," Portman told "CBS This Morning."

"In something this complicated, there are going to be differences, but I feel confident we'll come together," Portman added.

Portman said the reform plan would be a "big deal" for lower-income families. "The benefit is really focused on middle class and those who are in this range of thirty to 70,000 bucks," Portman said.

On Monday, Portman expressed in a press release his confidence that the tax reform plan would pass.
