Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Sunday that “failure is not an option” when it comes to the GOP’s effort on tax reform.

“The economy needs a tax cut and the Republican Party needs to deliver, so I think we’ll get there,” Graham told CNN’s “State of the Union.”

{mosads}Graham said he believes Republicans will obtain the necessary votes to pass tax-reform legislation, which reportedly could see a vote in the upper chamber as early as Thursday.

The House earlier this month passed its own version of a tax-reform bill, which differs from the legislation currently in the Senate.

In its current form, the Senate bill would delay the cut to the corporate tax rate until 2019. 

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) has already come out against the Senate bill, meaning the Senate GOP can only afford one more defection.
