WASHINGTON (AP/WMOT) — Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker is getting national media attention as he weighs in on tax reform negotiations. Republican mavericks like Corker are pressuring their leaders to rethink some of the most contentious issues, like taxes.
Corker is being quoted saying Senate Republicans would probably agree to higher taxes for the wealthiest Americans if it leads to overhauling entitlement programs. Here’s what he had to say when he spoke to reporter Judy Woodruff recently on the PBS NewsHour.
