Corker to vote no on GOP tax bill

Of course he will.

Hell hath no fury like an insecure senator scorned.

Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) said on Friday that he will oppose the GOP tax plan, making him the only GOP senator currently expected to vote no.

Corker has long said he could vote against the bill if it hiked the deficit, and he alluded to those concerns in his statement.

“This is yet another tough vote. I am disappointed. I wanted to get to yes. But at the end of the day, I am not able to cast aside my fiscal concerns and vote for legislation that I believe, based on the information I currently have, could deepen the debt burden on future generations,” Corker said in a statement.

He added that while he supports parts of the Senate legislation and believes it could be made more “fiscally sound … it is clear the caucus is in a different place.”
