Senate Republicans are determined to keep their ambitious policy agenda alive amid the political turbulence from President Trump’s surprise decision to sack FBI Director James Comey.
They say they aren’t worried about threats from Democrats to slow the Senate, and are signaling they believe the fight over Comey will eventually fade.
“I’m not concerned,” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) told The Hill when asked about the agenda. “We’ll get it done.”
Republican senators have been cautious not to put a deadline on wrapping up work on their healthcare bill, though Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas) has said it will be passed by the end of the year.
