WASHINGTON, DC. - Republicans are feeling antsy over a key provision in their tax plan that could put some of the party’s most vulnerable members in the House in deeper jeopardy.

The GOP tax plan would raise $1.3 trillion over the next decade by eliminating a deduction for state and local taxes.

The provision would help Republicans pay for lower rates, but could hit people hard in high-tax states such as New York, New Jersey and California.

In the House, Republicans in swing districts disproportionately represent constituencies where the tax deduction is important, creating an immediate campaign ad for Democrats.
