In a case of legislative déjà vu (“légà vu”?), the House voted for a second time on the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in order to comply with Senate rules. The bill would cut taxes for Americans at every income level, simplify the tax code, and unleash economic prosperity by slashing the corporate tax rate to make the United States an even stronger competitor in the world economy.

“I thought yesterday’s vote would be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to help Florida’s middle class and make America’s economy stronger. Apparently, it’s a twice-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” said U.S. Rep. Dennis A. Ross (R-FL-15), Senior Deputy Majority Whip. “I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again—with this bill, Republicans are delivering on our promise to make America great again.”
