As Caps on Federal Deductions
Begin, High-Tax States
Seek a New Scheme

PJ Media, by Tom Knighton

Posted By:Hazymac, 1/3/2018 9:30:30 AM

For many, there are few things quite as enjoyable as watching high-tax states kvetch that the new GOP tax plan caps deductions on federal tax returns for state and local taxes. Taxpayers in other states have long subsidized the spendthrift ways of states like California and New York. Those states could always sell yet another tax increase to their citizens, who knew they could deduct the increase on federal returns. But those days are over, and high-tax states are scrambling to figure out how to keep having their cake and eating it, too. The New York Times reports: "One proposal would replace

Suing the Feds for a change in a tax deduction? No doubt some Obambi or Clinton or Carter appointed Black-robed Demigod will say, sure, the mean old Feds can´t do that. Love the ´charitable´ deduction for paying a tax. Wish we could get taht in flyyover country.

The discontinuance of the ability to deduct credit card and loan debt created the Second Mortgage, so why wouldn´t the States find another way to squeeze more out of them?

I´m not buying the argument that the old rule was a "subsidy" of blue states by red states. Incomes tend to be higher in blue states, so even after they are trimmed by state taxes, the net federal amount is still higher. Wikipedia has a list of IRS revenue per state, and those that were highest in 2015, on a per capita basis, were mostly blue (but not 100% blue). California and Texas´s per capita contribution to the IRS was about the same.

#3, or improve the business climate to grow the economy to create more revenues.

California will live on the new marijuana tax revenues they will obtain, for a little while, until they spread that around and don´t have anything left, then ask for more taxes, again.

The new gas tax of 12 cents per gallon is already spent, and only has enough to fix some of the roads, but not improve any of the, or add any new roads.

If tax payers in high tax states pay less in federal taxes than someone who has otherwise identical earning and situation in a low tax state that is a fundamental wrong. Federal taxes should be exactly equal for all in the same situation.

And because they pay less federal tax than they should if treated equitably, the other states are effectively paying more than their fair share - which has the effect of subsidizing the high tax state.

The lower federal tax bill is wrong, and evening it out is fair. Federal taxes should have nothing whatsoever to do with state taxes.

Today the Washington Examiner headlined: “Google refers to Republican senator David Perdue as ‘lying, unscrupulous politician.´” That is certainly eye-catching! Where did Google say this? In the box that shows up on the right side of the page when you search on Perdue’s name, as I wrote about here. (Snip) That’s pretty horrific. If Google has any sense–and someone there must–they are unhappy about it. What happened? I think the answer is that the text in the “knowledge graph,” as Google apparently calls it, comes from the Wikipedia page on the subject of the search. Wikipedia entries can be edited by

DOJ seeks to bypass Ninth

The Department of Justice said today that it will ask the Supreme Court to review immediately the ruling of a California federal judge (William Alsup) ordering the government to restart the DACA program. Normally, the appeal from that ruling would be heard by the ultra-liberal U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. However, the DOJ seeks to proceed directly to the Supreme Court. As long-time Supreme Court reporter Lyle Denniston explains, the Supreme Court has the discretion to hear a case even before it has gone through all of the lower court levels. However, it rarely exercises that discretion. The

I began the Laura Ingraham radio show this morning by playing, and commenting on, clips from yesterday’s press briefing by Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson, the Navy doctor who gave President Trump his physical exam. Dr. Jackson noted that he had given the president a cognitive test, at Trump’s insistence, even though Jackson saw no need for it. The president scored a perfect 30 out of 30 on the cognition test. This was, of course, what the slavering hounds of the White House press corps wanted to talk about. Here are the clips, courtesy of Grabien. This reporter wanted to know about

WASHINGTON -- Senate Republican leaders indicated today that they´re trying to forge a deal acceptable to the White House to save the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, but that they´re not quite sure what the president wants to see. Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas) met today with Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.). The same group of negotiators plans on sitting down again Thursday. "We all want to get to a solution here," Cornyn told reporters outside of a closed policy luncheon on Capitol Hill. "But the

Why did received opinion melt down so spectacularly when Donald Trump allegedly said in private that he wanted more immigrants from places like “Norway and Asia” and fewer from places like Haiti and Africa? Last Thursday, Senators Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) scheduled a meeting with the president to try to trick him into supporting their politically suicidal immigration bill. To their dismay, however, when they arrived they found that Trump had also invited realist immigration experts such as Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), and the president’s speechwriter Stephen Miller. In the ensuing debate, Durbin and Graham

WASHINGTON -- Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) admonished his colleagues on the Senate floor today to start taking President Trump to task for false statements and branding of media as fake news, comparing the latter to the actions of dictators. Flake declared that "without truth, and a principled fidelity to truth and to shared facts... our democracy will not last." "2017 was a year which saw the truth – objective, empirical, evidence-based truth -- more battered and abused than any other in the history of our country, at the hands of the most powerful figure in our government.

An intoxicated man who showed up at Saturday’s NFL divisional playoff game in Philadelphia without a ticket was arrested after punching a police horse and a cop, police said. Taylor Hendricks, 22, of Whitehall, Pa., was arrested after getting ejected from Lincoln Financial Field because he was drunk and didn’t have a ticket, police said in a statement. “After the male was ejected he walked over to a mounted officer and began punching the horse in the face, neck and shoulder area,” Officer Troy Brown, a police spokesman, said in a statement obtained by The Post.

As a rough contemporary of the president, hailing from the same metropolis, he from Queens and me from somewhat more tony Manhattan, parts of it anyway, I remember a certain type of schoolyard personality being called a "scorch."

TAMPA — Hillsborough County officials fired a Fire Rescue medic Tuesday after an internal investigation concluded he had "unwavering loyalty" to the Outlaws Motorcycle Club — the state’s dominant biker gang. Clinton Neal Walker, 33, of Bradenton is the first Hillsborough County employee to be investigated for gang activity under a series of countywide ordinances sparked by Walker’s own arrest last September over starting a bar fight in Key West. The fight came just three months after he was placed on administrative leave for joining another bar brawl in May 2016, this time in St. Petersburg with a city police officer. The

NBC plans to televise any players who refuse to stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl, but there may be nothing to show. It appears that NFL players are no longer taking a knee during the national anthem, namely because none of the teams with still-active protesters has qualified for the postseason. By the end of the regular season, only five teams featured at least one player regularly sitting or kneeling on the sidelines for the anthem: the Seattle Seahawks, the San Francisco 49ers, the Miami Dolphins, the New York Giants and the Oakland Raiders.

WASHINGTON- President Donald Trump relentlessly congratulates himself for the healthy state of the U.S. economy, with its steady growth, low unemployment, busier factories and confident consumers.But in the year since Trump´s inauguration, most analysts tend to agree on this: The economy remains essentially the same sturdy one he inherited from Barack Obama.Growth has picked up, but it´s not yet clear if it can sustain a faster expansion. Hiring and wage growth actually slowed slightly from Obama´s last year in office. Consumers and businesses are much more optimistic, but their spending has yet to move meaningfully higher.

Ever since Donald Trump entered the political arena, his intelligence has been viciously attacked and his supporters have been labeled as moronic deplorables. In a recent Trump tweet, the president responded to the most recent attack by saying he is a stable genius. The mainstream media never bothered checking evidence of Obama´s intelligence before one historian declared him "the smartest man with the highest IQ ever to be elected to the presidency", even though his academic records were sealed. What these attacks do prove is who the real brains are and who are the dummies: Alan Dershowitz may be for real

A crazed, bug-eyed Cory Booker, junior senator from New Jersey, blasted Department of Homeland Security secretary Kristjen Nielsen during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday on immigration. Booker became so unhinged in his staged outrage that he repeatedly threatened Nielsen, with clenched fists pointed in her direction. Equal to Booker´s overt violation of Nielsen´s right to be treated without hostility and intimidation was the deranged content of his tirade. Nielsen had stated earlier she did not hear the president say the "s-hole" word at last week´s White House meeting on DACA. Booker went ballistic and accused Nielsen of covering up

From his perch in the Ohio governor’s mansion, Republican John Kasich is keeping a keen eye on President Trump’s every move and showing a willingness — some say eagerness — to hurl rotten tomatoes toward the leader of his party when he gets upset with the act.He has become a go-to anti-Trump source for the media and often doesn’t even wait for the press to call. Instead, he leaps in to pile on after presidential missteps.While insisting he wants Mr. Trump to succeed, Mr. Kasich has pointedly refused to rule out mounting a primary challenge against the president in 2020.

Three-quarters of the members of a federally chartered board advising the National Park Service abruptly quit Monday night out of frustration that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had refused to meet with them or convene a single meeting last year. The resignation of nine out of 12 National Park System Advisory Board members leaves the federal government without a functioning body to designate national historic or natural landmarks. It also underscores the extent to which federal advisory bodies have become marginalized under the Trump administration. In May 2017, Zinke suspended all outside committees while his staff reviewed their composition and work. In a
