You must have some one else do your taxes. Say it isn’t true. As soon as we have to talk real numbers it always looses the far right.
Numbers are being manipulated just like you have been.

I don't live in a high tax state and will benefit from the raising if the SALT deduction as will many wealthier Republicans from low tax red states. In blue states where property taxes are exorbitant, the SALT benefit trickles down to the middle class's.

Though I would benefit, I'm not for it being raised beyond 10k. I fail to understand why Democrats would be for it seeing is it mainly helps the wealthy, who they claim they want to force to pay their "fair share."

You have to look at the entire tax structure. The Fed can easily decide winners and losers. The real estate developers including Trump are helped immensely. Be also,aware that 1.4/trillion was cut out of Medicaid. These are medical funds for the poor that the state has primary control over. You think that’s going to,not affect state income, property and sales taxes ?

Overall, I know it’s cool to just say, everyone got a tax cut. It seems it’s not balanced and the middle class cuts sunset while then top 1% cuts are permaren’t till passed by congress.

The Republican tax bill got worse: now the top 1% gets 83% of the gains​

The point is that Democrats are pushing for further tax cuts for predominately weather families via an increase in the SALT deduction from Trump levels. Why are Democrats ok with that but not ok with Trump cutting taxes on the "rich"? My guess is because it helps wealthier Democrats from blue states immensely. As I said, it helps me too, but I fail to see the consistency in the Democratic argument.

You don’t even know what SALT refers to.

Why did you lie about Trump "eliminating" the SALT deduction? Does your argument still work without your lie?

Both parties want this no matter what the GOP says in public...ruling is more attractive to elected officials than governing....we are surfs forever now....until the new revolution begins....and that won't be for a long time....it took decades of British abuse before Americans had had enough...
Often change happens rapidly. For example as the following article mentions the USSR fell apart overnight. I hope the United States will survive the current storm but the level of corruption in our nation worries me. Plus we have a liberal media that has sacrificed all the ethics of good journalism and generates fake news and propaganda for the Democratic Party.

The Soviet Union collapsed overnight. Don’t assume western democracy will last for ever | Paul Mason

But perhaps there is still hope. The Washington Post recently admitted it was wrong about some stories involving the Steele Dossier. If we do split apart I feel it is likely the Chinese will end up ruling the world with an iron fist.

You loved tax breaks for the wealthy when Trump was president.
I loved the tax cuts for the lower/working classes. Progs do not do that. They play games with specific groups in those income levels.

How much of a tax cut did the poor get considering they have a zero net tax level?
