State and local taxes(SALT) are to be capped as a deduction at $10,000 on IRS form 1040. The Democrats wanted the SALT to be 100%. However, they refused to back the tax cut threatening to defeat any tax cut if that particular kind of tax cut required a 60 vote margin. Such 60-vote barrier...one the Republicans could have removed had they the courage and boldness of Donald J. Trump...prevented the Republicans from passing anything but some budget-stuff masquerading as government decision-making. And...part of that nonsense was the $10,000 CAP.
Most of the Democrats* are from socialist states that tax and tax and tax some more. They grab all that can be grabbed...and...refuse to release their grip from the throat of liberty. To these worms and knaves...the 60 vote barrier prevents escape from the 20th Century NANNY STATE CAGE...a place where such ghouls as RICHARD CORDRAY can walk the street without being spat upon due the guards he has surrounding him.
*U.S. Senator Bill Nelson,(D.FL) has done all he can to destroy the Florida farm. He hates liberty. He must be defeated in 2018! NELSON is a farm-hater. His idea is to have government farms much like in China and North Korea...run by ghouls and knaves...his team so to speak. Instead of asking the Democrats to support TRUMP...scumbag-Nelson led the Democrats to fight against the ESTATE TAX repeal and as Nelson said, "That $10,000 cap will destroy almost every farm in Florida. It makes my left leg tingle."
