The House of Representatives passed by a 227-203 vote Tuesday H.R. 1, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
The final GOP tax cut bill now moves to the Senate, where a vote is expected later in the day. President Donald Trump is expected to sign the legislation into law as soon as Wednesday.
In the House, 12 republicans voted against the bill, while all democrats voted no.
Last week, “we came together in a House-Senate Conference Committee — which I had the honor of leading — to deliver one unified, transformational tax reform bill for the American people,” said House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady, R-Texas.

“This bill is — and always has been — focused on delivering more jobs, fairer taxes, and bigger paychecks to hardworking Americans nationwide.”
But Democrats lambasted the bill Tuesday on the House floor before the vote.
“Republicans have made clear that cuts to Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare are next,” said Rep. Suzan DelBene, D-Wash.
