There is some pushback against the Trump plan to get rid of state and local tax deductions. It’s a tax break that pretty strongly benefits blue states and I’m sympathetic to their frustration, but also believe that state and local taxes shouldn’t be deductible. Other than flattening taxes, I’m not sure what we could do to offset it. The same problem occurs with the mortgage deduction, which similarly favors blue states (albeit less reliably)

One of only areas I consider Trump to be especially good on is energy, so it figures that the administration’s own incompetence would get in its own way there.
Oh, well, okay then.
I’m still trying to determine if the whole Heath Mello thing was just the result of some bad reporting and a political party that refuses to acknowledge its mistake, or whether the Democratic Party’s new standards on abortion or genuinely this strict.
