Posted on 12/19/2017 1:37:12 PM PST by x1stcav
The GOP tax reform bill known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, came one important step closer to becoming law on Tuesday when the bill passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 227 to 203.
No Democrats voted for the bill, of course. The party of big, centralized government isnt for anyone keep more of their own money, other than perhaps illegal aliens and welfare recipients, and will never vote to cut anybodys taxes.
But not all Republicans voted for the bill either. Here are the 12 Republicans all from high tax states who joined Democrats in voting against passage:
Dana Rohrabacher of California Darrell Issa of California Walter B. Jones of North Carolina Frank A. LoBiondo of New Jersey Christopher H. Smith of New Jersey Leonard Lance of New Jersey Rodney Frelinghuysen of New Jersey Lee Zeldin of New York Peter King of New York Dan Donovan of New York John J. Faso of New York Elise Stefanik of New York

Makes perfect sense. Issa and Rohrbacher represent the last great Republican strongholds in CA and also one of the wealthiest in CA. Doubtful they’ll lose their seats over this.

Lets see a show of hands. Anyone here think RINO Ryan will punish or sanction these Renegade Repubs?
They are going to get a do over.
House needs to vote again on sweeping tax bill over procedural snag
None in my district, so cannot vote them out. Hopefully their constituents will. Get rid of Ryan for failing to get them in line, maybe his successor can demote them in their committees, the RBC and others should withhold funds.
I would hate to vote as they did. I don’t know their districts all that well, and I’m not against them running for cover if the head count without them was already solid.
No use putting them in a position to lose their seats.
This may not have been the hill to die on, if the bill was already passing.
The 529 use for home schooling supplies and non colleges schools and an excise tax exemption for one college violate the Byrd rule.
Leonard Lance is my Congressman and an all around scumbag. He was running local ads all week including on social media supporting tax cuts. Now that he can afford to be given cover, he votes no. The guy does this all the time. A complete tool.
Say it ain't so.
Well, I guess they probably got permission so they wouldn't have to hear the campaign ads accusing them of raising taxes on California next election time.
Politically savvy I guess, but I still don't like it.
I hope those congressmen voted no because the tax cuts are too small.
Lots of liberal states. They probably got permission to vote against it for reelection purposes, since their votes won’t make a difference.
I recognize most of these as in districts targeted by the Dems this cycle. My guess is leadership told them they could vote no because they already had a comfortable majority. Takes an issue away from the Rat who will oppose them.
You could say that as the taxes will be hiked for their constituents. I don’t expect any R from CA, NY or NJ will survive beyond 2018.
Most, if not all of them represent districts in blue states, so if they are truly representing their constituents, they had to vote no.
They voted no b/c of the $10,000 cap on the deductibility of state and local taxes (SALT). NY, NJ, & CA are high tax states. Don’t know about NC, although the Socialists are marching down the Eastern seaboard, fouling states South & North and turning them into blue cesspools.
The removal of the SALT deductions makes a vote for it nearly impossible for a Rep from NY or CA to vote for and hope to keep their job... of course it won’t likely matter anyway... since that means higher tax bills for most of their constituents.
Republicans are suppose to be for tax cuts.
