    Just the opposite.
    The graph represents the $ paid to the fed vs. what they receive in federal funding.
    NY and CA receive less than a dollar of federal funding for every dollar they pay in.

    Contrast those states that the OP and others claim are "stealing" because of the deduction with those states who have no state income tax. You will see that it is actually those states with no income tax that receive much more than they pay.

    Seven U.S. states currently don't have an income tax: Alaska, Florida,Nevada, South Dakota, Texas,Washington and Wyoming.

    Did you read what I said in previous post? At all?

    You probably know, and in the case you don't I'll tell you, that districts are drawn by the party in power. For decades, MI districts were drawn/gerrymandered by the Democrats. Despite that Democrats drawn the lines, Republicans still won and took over the MI Congress and now they're in the control of drawing districts.

    You call it gerrymandering, and even if it is, and it's not, its in their Constitutional power to do so, just as Democrats had the same power for decades. I call it, correcting the wrong. It seems, you didn't have problem with Democrats drawing districts as long they were winning, now suddenly it's wrong for Republicans to even have that right.

    Hillary lost, got it?

    What's not to like about sticking it to everyone in California and New York?

    Don't forget Illinois. To me, that's the most exciting about this bill.

    I hear you, but in 2012 the Pubs changed districts. Yes they won due to the ACA and tea party. In many states the politicians do not draw lines, and wi is at the supreme court now. We need to get rid of this law and also the EC. We will get a Dem Gov next time, mark my words.
    As much as the UP is racist, they need their social programs.

    Who drawn the lines prior the 2012?

    Why do you think UP is racist?

    I know a hell of a lot more about taxes than you do. Taxes are not a political weapon to be used against your enemies. You are the one who uses left wing ideas to support this. People keeping more of their hard earned money is not stealing.

    We have no idea at what income levels these rates take effect at so you cannot say that. The new standard deduction is not indexed to inflation and if you have more than 3 people, you are getting less than the current standard deduction and personal exemption combined.

    Trump's tax plan has zero chance of passing congress, members of congress worry too much about getting re-elected. The deduction for state income taxes isn't going away, neither is the deduction for home mortgage interest. The only tax plan that might pass would be a punish the rich tax increase plan.
