The budget plan, proposed by Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Patty Murray, only narrowly passed by a 50-49 vote. The blueprint seeks to raise almost $ 1 trillion in new tax revenue through closing loopholes and tax breaks on the wealthy. It also aims to reduce the deficit by $ 1.85 trillion over the next 10 years through the revenue and additional spending cuts.
