Scott, in a speech on the House floor before the vote, said the bill will hurt poorer Americans because it will cut $1.5 trillion from Medicaid and Medicare to pay for the cuts.

Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-3) was the only House member from New Jersey to vote on Thursday for a Republican tax overhaul, a vote that could cost him next year as he goes up for re-election.

AWEA has estimated that the House's version of the tax reform bill would threaten 60,000 American jobs and $50 billion in private investment, mostly in rural areas.

According to a study by the nonpartisan Tax Foundation, a middle-income family in California would see an increase of $2,932 in their annual after-tax income.
