“You can’t craft any bill that would guarantee no one was in a special category that might get a tax increase,” the majority leader added. 

McConnell’s interview comes after the Senate early Saturday passed its tax-reform bill, which includes the repeal of ObamaCare’s individual mandate.

“Every segment of taxpayers, every category of taxpayers, on average, gets significant relief,” McConnell said of the bill on Sunday.
