Capitol Police said Tuesday that they arrested 36 people protesting outside a Senate Budget Committee hearing on the GOP tax bill.

Police arrested all 36 on charges of disrupting Congress in their protest of the bill, which the committee advanced for a full vote on the Senate floor. Two of the demonstrators were charged with resisting arrest.

"Officers on the scene arrested the demonstrators when they failed to cease and desist their unlawful demonstration activities in and around the Committee hearing room, resulting in the disruption of the hearing," Capitol Police said in a statement.

The Budget Committee temporarily recessed due to the loud chants of "shame on you" and "don't kill us, kill the bill" by protesters, who the police removed and arrested.

The bill passed the GOP-led panel on a 12-11 party-line vote after President Trump pressured two key Republican holdouts to vote for the bill.
