Manchin was one of three Democratic senators to not sign a letter from Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., setting conditions for tax reform legislation. The latter meeting's goal would be to try kick starting an effort to coalesce around the budget proposal for the coming fiscal year.

"I'm hopeful but there's no white smoke or there's nothing done but we'll see where this leads in the coming 48 hours", Malloy said.

Trump's legislative affairs director, Marc Short, said at a Christian Science Monitor event that "there's probably compromise" necessary to get a deal, but "we think that what's best for the American people is a 15 percent corporate rate right now".

But, conservatives do have some concerns that the bill could be more bipartisan and therefore moderate than they'd like.

He and another group of senators met earlier Tuesday with Mnuchin to work on details of a budget resolution that would allow the Senate to approve a tax overhaul bill with 51 votes instead of 60. The truly historic Tax Reform Act of 1986 was both bipartisan and a seemingly never-ending journey that ate up a full two years of Congress' time. But if the GOP can't deliver on the tax reform need to give hardworking Americans a business relief and boost economic growth, "there's going to be hell to pay", she warned.

He said that McConnell complained for years about ObamaCare, and when he finally had a chance to repeal and replace the health care law, he blew it.

The failure angered Trump, who is far more interested in results than ideological purity.

It's a sentiment that held over the course of the dinner, as Democrats left the White House not revealing the exact details, but expressing a renewed sense of encouragement from the administration.

Asked about McConnell's characterization on Tuesday, Sen.

Trump is doing everything he can to advance his agenda as president of the United States of America without the help of congressional Republicans, Ingraham said. "We did a face plant on that exact logic", Brat said.

"I'm sure they want to keep it all going".

"The approval process for the biggest tax cut and tax reform package in the history of our country will soon begin".

There's also the issue of the budget.

The President has expressed working with both Democrats and Republicans to push forward the tax reform bill. Heitkamp even traveled with Trump aboard Air Force One last week to a campaign-style rally in North Dakota.

But the Big Six have yet to finalize an agreement, and lobbyists say the group is still undecided on basic elements of a tax reform plan, including whether tax legislation should add to the federal deficit or be revenue-neutral.
