Republicans confident tax bill to become law this weekBy Amanda Becker and Lindsay Dunsmuir WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Top U.S. Republicans said on Sunday they expected Congress to pass a tax code overhaul this week, with a Senate vote as early as Tuesday and President Donald Trump aiming to sign the bill by week's end. John Cornyn, the No. 2 U.S. Senate Republican, said in an interview on ABC's "This Week" that he was "confident" the Senate would pass the legislation, "probably on Tuesday." Republican Representative Kevin Brady said he believed his party had the votes to pass the bill.
