The Senate voted to give President Donald Trump tax relief Tuesday, giving him the largest tax cut in decades.

The Senate passed the measure with 50 votes to 49, clearing the way for the Senate to vote on the package.

The bill will then go to the House.

The legislation includes $10 billion in tax relief for low- and middle-income families, as well as $1.6 trillion in tax cuts for individuals and businesses.

Republicans and Democrats also approved an increase in the federal gas tax, the biggest boost for gas in nearly a decade.

The tax bill also includes $1 trillion in infrastructure spending and $2.5 trillion in federal housing aid.

Democrats and Republicans have already reached a deal on spending, including $200 billion in infrastructure and $1 billion in other spending, but Republicans have said they’ll oppose the package unless they’re able to pass a budget resolution.

Republicans have promised to move forward with a spending plan after they have the votes, but that’s been unclear.

The House passed its version of the bill by a wide margin, with 52 to 45.

Democrats blocked the tax bill, saying it would lead to a double-dip recession and a loss of jobs.

The vote is expected to be a blow to Democrats, who have been trying to use the tax overhaul as a way to push the economy to the brink of recession and force President Donald Trumps hand.

Democrats said the tax cuts are needed to help them avoid a second recession and prevent another major economic collapse.

Trump has been accused of playing politics with the economy.

Democrats have blamed the president for the economy’s slow growth, but Trump has said he’s not worried about the economy, and he has been repeatedly praised by economists for his handling of the economy and its recovery.

The president’s approval rating dipped to 41 percent in a poll published Tuesday by Quinnipiac University.
