House of representatives re-votes in favour of the tax bill, bringing victory to Republicans

The House of Representatives dominated by Republicans yesterday gave a green light to the greatest revamp of the US tax legislation since 1980s, directing the tax bill to Donald Trump to be signed.

This is the biggest win for President Trump since his inauguration at the start of 2017, on the way Republicans suppressed the Democratic opposition and managed to push through the bill that cuts taxes for big companies and the rich, at the same time providing only temporary tax alleviation to working U.S. people.

The lower chamber of Congress gave its approval to the initiative with 224-201 vote, having conducted the procedure twice due to a certain slip-up.

As for the Senate with the Republican majority, it also passed the bill with the result of 51-48 yesterday morning. They’re making America great again, which means jobs, and more jobs, according to the U.S. President Donald Trump, who made a statement at the celebration with lawmakers.

The president, who highlighted a tax reduction for working American people over the course of his campaign last year, is sure that decreasing the corporate tax down to 21% from previous 35% is nearly the most important factor in it.
