    Ms. Jules,

    Don't know. They don't represent my district so I haven't look.

    Might I suggest you go to their web sites to see their positions.

    Ms. Jules,

    Hope this helps:

    "House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said that he, too, favored expanding state and local tax deductibility, and also said he hoped the House bill’s limit on the deductibility of mortgage interest would be raised. The House bill excludes deductions of interest on loans larger than $500,000; the Senate bill keeps the current $1 million threshold intact."

    "Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), a senior Ways and Means Committee member who is also serving on the conference committee, said he did not believe that the state and local tax deduction — known as SALT — needed to be addressed in the final bill, but said he would be open to discussions."

    "Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), who represents a high-tax coastal area north of San Diego, voted no on the House tax bill and dismissed the changes McCarthy is seeking as “minuscule.” He said the ability to deduct $10,000 in state taxes from their federal tax bill would not go far enough to help his constituents."

    "Rep. Mimi Walters (R-Calif.) represents a high-tax Orange County district but voted in favor of the tax bill. She’s now seeking assurances that the state and local property tax issue will be resolved, and said that if the $10,000 deduction can be applied to state taxes, or split between state and local taxes, that’s enough to get her to vote yes."

    They sound nervous, especially Issa. That's good news.....improving the chances for Dems to retake the House in 2018.

    Honorable?
    These are the people whose tax plan hurts the middle and lower classes, adds to the debt and transfers wealth to the already wealthy such that they're widening the inequality gap.
    And what's the method to their madness? To begin chipping away at SS and Medicare and Medicaid, to recreate a feudal system.

    Ms. Jules,

    Your irrational screed full of platitudes aside, what are your comments on my TP?

    Ms. Jules,

    By the by, you do realized the income inequity gap and wealth transfer to the wealthy increased the most during the Obama administration, and the second most during the Clinton administration?

    You are just the cutest thing when you can't counter a debate, you throw out the troll card...

    By the by, by definition, does that not make you the troll?
