The Senate and House tax bills may have differences, but it's highly likely Republicans will be able to come to an agreement and pass a final legislation, Sara Fagen, a former senior aide to President George W. Bush, told CNBC on Thursday.
She pegged the odds of victory at 70 percent.
"These tax bills, while certainly they have very different elements, are more aligned than they are opposed. And there is real sense … by Republicans that this has to get done. They need it for the country, and they need it politically for their own jobs," the former political director for Bush said in an interview with "Power Lunch. "
The House passed its version of tax reform on Thursday and the Senate Finance Committee is expected to vote Friday on whether to advance its measure to the full chamber.
There is little room for Republican defections in the Senate, where the party only holds a two-seat majority. On Thursday, Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., told CNBC he would not vote for the measure in its current form. He said he wants to fix it so that he can support it.
"If you start seeing more people talk about defecting as Republicans it gets really hard to figure out how this gets put together in the Senate," Fagen said.
However, she said the "psychology of winning" the vote on Thursday was very important.
Fagen also said Senate leadership will work things out with Johnson because they can't afford to lose him.
David Bahnsen, chief investment officer at HighTower Advisors Bahnsen Group, agrees.
"Senator Johnson is not going to get everything he wants. But I think he's going to get enough to get him on board and probably improve the bill in the meantime," he said in an interview with "Closing Bell. "
If the Senate passes its bill, the two chambers will have to craft a joint plan before Congress can pass final legislation.
Terry Haines, senior political strategist at Evercore ISI, said the chances of tax reform's ultimate success is pretty high.
"There's going to be a little bit of horse-trading that goes on but fundamentally what this is about is holding onto structure of aggressive corporate tax cuts, the individual tax cuts … and keeping it within budgetary lines of this small static increase in deficit that's been agreed to by the House and the Senate," he told "Closing Bell."
