House passes sweeping GOP tax plan

WASHINGTON — Eager to deliver major legislation to President Trump, House Republicans on Thursday passed a sweeping tax overhaul bill that numerous analyses show would disproportionately hurt individuals in California and other high-tax states. The bill passed 227 to 205 with 13 House Republicans, including three from California, voting no and not a single Democrat voting yes. The vote now shifts the focus of tax overhaul to the Senate, which has its own legislative version. Among the dissenting GOP House members Thursday were Californians Tom McClintock of Elk Grove (Sacramento County), Dana Rohrabacher of Costa Mesa (Orange County) and Darrell Issa of Vista (San Diego County).
