Starting in the next hour:
President Trump planned to hold a victory celebration at the White House on Wednesday after a massive tax reform bill cleared the House. The vote was 224-201. No Democrats voted for it, and they were joined by 12 Republicans.
Republican lawmakers were expected to attend the White House ceremony, although it is unclear when Trump will actually sign the legislation.
The Senate passed the massive tax bill early on Wednesday morning, but the House, which had cleared it on Tuesday, had to vote on it again because of revisions made to the legislation.
The vote in the Senate was 51-48, with all Republicans voting yes and all Democrats and independents voting no. Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona), undergoing cancer treatment, was not present.

House GOPers on the Capitol plaza now, loading into buses to head to the White House for celebration with Trump on passing tax bill. Senate GOPers will load into buses as well soon.
