John Cornyn, the No. 2 U.S. Senate Republican, said on Sunday he was confident Republicans would pass a tax overhaul bill this week.
"I am confident we will pass this bill, probably on Tuesday," Cornyn said in a television interview on ABC`s "This Week."
He added that it was unclear whether Republican Senator John McCain, who is receiving treatment for brain cancer, would vote this week.
"I won`t speculate on Senator McCain`s health," Cornyn said. We hope he comes back."
