Half the House Members Who Wrote Trump's Tax Law Are Out of Their Jobs After Tuesday's Vote

On Tuesday, voters handed Democrats the House of Representatives ó and may have also rendered a verdict on President Trumpís signature tax cuts.

The House Ways and Means Committee, which oversees taxes and trade, saw four of its Republican members lose their seats. Those four defeats come after five other Republicans on the committee already left mid-term or decided to retire.

With three more committee members running for other offices, come January, half of the 24 Republicans who wrote the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will no longer be in Congress.

1. Trickle down? Trickle OUT!

Anti-ACA votes did them no favors in the long run either. Legislative Karma is REAL.

2. Maybe Trump's influence over them will be broken

early in the lame duck session.
