The GOP-controlled House passed a tax bill that eliminates many popular deductions, but reduces the tax brackets to three instead of seven and doubles standard deductions.

It passed 227-205. However, 13 Republicans voted against the bill and no Democrats voted for it. This could spell gloom for it in...
