the murders. They don't know if this man is completely innocent, and so they're keeping up nightly patrols. And this evening, a reality check. Who benefits the most from the tax bill? Mary Bruce breaks it down. Reporter: President trump on capitol hill today. An all-out push to rally Republicans around tax reform. Mr. President, can you seal the deal on tax reform? Moments later, it cleared a major hurdle. The senate budget committee signing off on the bill over the shouts of protesters. But outside, Republican senators were surrounded.

If it doesn't do what I think it will do, then we will lose. Mary, where does the voting math stand at this hour? Reporter: This is far from a done deal. Senate Republicans can only afford to lose two votes. And by our count, at least ten have serious concerns. But many tell us they were encouraged today in discussion
