MARYLAND TO SUE PRES TRUMP OVER SPENDING CAPS, BUDGET CONTROL, STATE TAX LAWS: TAX CUTS JOBS ACT PASSED BY CONGRESS

Posted on February 9, 2018


WT: “Maryland will sue the Trump administration for capping state and local tax (SALT) deductions in its new federal tax law, the state’s attorney general said Thursday. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act signed by President Trump last year contains a provision capping SALT deductions at $10,000, and Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh said residents across the heavily-taxed state stand to take a hit as a result.”

“Mr. Frosh, a Democrat, said in a statement announcing his intent to sue the Trump administration, “By eliminating the SALT deductions, Trump’s tax bill will jack up taxes for more than half a million Marylanders. It is an attack on state sovereignty and an attempt to cripple our ability to educate our kids, protect the Chesapeake Bay, and build the infrastructure that Maryland needs to be competitive in the world economy.”

Remember the BCA (Budget Control Act)? It includes spending caps and sequester spending cuts if those caps are violated. Government runs out of money because it does not have budgets, the continuing resolutions expire. When renewed we refund EPA green causes, sanctuary cities, Planned Parenthood, school lunches… The party the people elected allows the losers to control policies and the spending to fund them. Why elect the GOP? The minority dems are blocking the people’s agenda, Pres Trump’s Make America Great Again, with the support of the republicans.

Pres Trump signed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act after it was passed by Congress.
