Now that the Democrats will add one more vote in the U.S. Senate, will it interfere with the expected GOP tax cut vote? Not likely, according to Louisiana U.S. Senator John Kennedy. Doug Jones will likely not take office for Alabama for about two weeks.

On WWL First News this morning, Kennedy says the tax cut plan is on a fast track to victory.

''We're going to take a tax vote, if it were up to me, we would work through the weekend and vote probably Sunday afternoon,'' said Kennedy. "I think it will be pass and I think it will go to the president's desk before Christmas."

Kennedy says that among Republicans, there is an air of confidence now on Capitol Hill.
