President Donald Trump and Senate Republicans are scrambling to change a GOP tax bill in an effort to win over holdout GOP senators and pass a tax package by the end of the year.

In a Monday morning tweet, the president says, "With just a few changes, some mathematical, the middle class and job producers can get even more in actual dollars and savings."

Opponents in Nebraska and Iowa protested the plan Monday. In Omaha, members of Indivisible Nebraskans gathered outside the office of Senator Ben Sasse.

They say the GOP tax plan would give deep tax cuts to the rich, at the expense of the rest of the country. They called the plan a “scam” and urged senators to vote no.

The tax reform bill passed the House of Representatives and the Senate vote could come within days. Republicans hope to have a bill on the president's desk before the end of the year.
