Of Liberals and Loopholes: The current tax code favors high-tax states. “In 2010, the deduction for state and local income taxes for all states amounted to $249.7 billion. …$51 billion of those writeoffs were claimed by residents of one state, California. And five liberal states—California, New York, New Jersey, Maryland and Massachusetts—accounted for about $121.8 billion. A mere five states accounted for nearly half the federal revenue lost from this tax deduction.”

I’m not for taxes, but if you vote yourself high local taxes, why should the rest of us pay to support these states high taxes? I say get rid of the deduction all together, not even link it to $250k.

damnit ooddballz, i had a zinger too. but yours… sirpube i mean superb.

also, i have no idea what this means. but as for Texas, if it’s bad, it’s from Dallasisstan, Austigmatismstan (remember Charles Whitman,) El Pariahso (aka gateway to America, if you been there, you’ve seen Juarrez and can understand why America is the (or at least it once was) the land of opportunity and freedom), and Laredoperstanikanquetzalcoatl.
