Congressman Tom McClintock Voted NO on House Tax Bill and Issued The Following Statement after Passage of Bill

Posted by: thepinetree on 11/16/2017 12:25 PM
Washington, DC...I am convinced that the business side of this bill will produce dramatic growth for the national economy. However, I believe the personal income tax side does significant harm, particularly to many families in high-cost, high-tax states like California. This was entirely avoidable, if higher priority had been given to family tax relief than was given to tax simplification. The current major deductions for such expenses as mortgage interest, state and local income taxes, medical and casualty expenses and student loan interest could all have been retained in the bill, while still providing a significant, across-the-board reduction in all tax rates, assuring that no taxpayer was left behind.
