Not Again?!
 
An unexpected ruling by the Senate parliamentarian last night threw a last-minute glitch into the GOP's tax cut plans.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was forced to suspend the "vote-a-rama" as the leadership scrambled to secure support from various holdouts, namely Senators Bob Corker (R-TN) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ).
