The Republican tax bill is ready for the president’s signature.
After forcing its second vote in two days, the bill passed the House with a vote of 224 to 201.
The bill previously cleared the Senate with a narrow 51-48 vote along party lines, though Republican Senator John McCain was unable to cast a vote as he undergoes cancer treatment in his home state.
Now the only thing standing between $1.5 trillion in tax cuts and law is a signature from its biggest proponent.
The bill remaps current income tax brackets, slashes individual tax rates for the wealthiest Americans, doubles the standard deduction to $12,000 for individual filers and famously issues a massive, much salivated over cut to the corporate tax rate, lowering it from 35% to 21%.
The piece of legislation is an eleventh hour win for Republicans, who have failed to pass any meaningful legislation during Trump’s first year in office in spite of controlling the House, Senate and the presidency.
