Tim Scott Shoots Down Democratic Criticism of Tax Reform

The South Carolina senator described Democrats' criticism of the legislative process as disingeneous, saying they knew what was in the bill.

Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday that Democrats knew what would be in the tax reform bill before they voted on it, contrary to their statements.

Senate Democrats had complained that Republicans passed the bill without knowing the full details of amendments offered to the plan, a claim Scott shot down.

“The last hearing that we had was a 23-hour hearing. We had 63 Democrat amendments that were offered,” Scott said.

The senator pointed out that the “last-minute changes” about which Democrats complained had been public “for weeks.”

Scott told Tapper that final changes were made to make life easier for many Americans who own or work at small business.

“The suggestion that we had so little time to take a look at 500 pages is inconsistent with the truth,” he said.
