Senator Ron Johnson -- the first GOP senator to voice opposition to the current tax plan -- said he’s encouraged that Republican leaders have been discussing his concerns that pass-through businesses would be treated unfairly.

“I’m encouraged by the information and the cooperation I’m getting right now” from the tax-writing Senate Finance Committee, Wisconsin’s Johnson said Monday during an interview with Milwaukee-based WISN radio. He added that he was responsible for bringing the issue of pass-throughs getting less of a benefit than corporations to the forefront of the debate.
