Friday’s vote was 22-191 in the Republican-led House to approve the legislation. The vote was mostly along party lines. Democrats continued their solid opposition to tax-cut legislation, asserting it favors corporations and wealthy individuals over middle-income Americans.
It’s the second tax-cut proposal that Republican leaders have pushed in less than a year.
Prospects for the legislation in the Senate are weak, given the slim Republican majority and concern over the potential for further blowing up the deficit.
