Senate votes to block last-minute GOP tax break for conservative Michigan college

Senate Democrats on Friday successfully blocked a provision in the Republicans’ sweeping tax bill designed to give a special tax break to a conservative college in Michigan.

Democrats said the tax break was designed to help just one politically-connected school: Hillsdale College in southern Michigan.

“I can’t find anybody else in America who benefits from this particular provision. That doesn’t strike me as right,” said Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore.

Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., said, “It feels like this is a very limited provision written for a very special person.”
