The Tennessee senator, who opposed the original Senate bill, said in a statement Friday that although the bill is far from perfect, the once-in-a-generation opportunity “to make U.S. businesses domestically more productive and internationally more competitive is one we should not miss.”
Corker had complained about adding to the nation’s $20 trillion debt with deep tax cuts.
In his statement, Corker said, “I realize this is a bet on our country’s enterprising spirit, and that is a bet I am willing to make.”
Corker is retiring when his term ends next year.
