    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said his administration plans to sue the federal government over the new Republican tax law, on the grounds that it’s unconstitutional because it discriminates against New York and other states that voted against President Donald Trump.

    “Make no mistake, they’re robbing the blue states to give money to red states,” Cuomo said during his State of the State speech in Albany Wednesday. “It is an economic civil war. It is illegal and we will challenge it in court as unconstitutional.”

    Cuomo, who described the Trump presidency as “the most hostile federal administration in history,” said the changes to state and local tax deductions in the bill will raise New Yorkers’ property and income taxes by at least 20 percent. The governor added that New York state already contributes $48 billion more annually to the federal government than it gets back.

    Good for him. This is what happens when you rush a bill through with no hearings and was done mainly to please the big GOP donors.
    There were weeks of hearings. and the constitution says that the US CONGRESS shall write the tax laws and they are to be UNIFORM across the US.

    The Bill meets all those CONSTITUTIONAL requirements.

    I am thinking of the 12 Democrat Senators in Red states that voted AGAINST the bill.

    I thought conservatives were against double taxation.

    Ms. Labrea,

    Using that logic, how was it not double taxation before?

    Reading the article would've answered your question

    The logic for that is simple. If you are required to pay those state and local taxes, it means you did it with income you no longer have. So, the current proposal to eliminate the deduction of state and local taxes on the federal tax return means that taxpayers will be required to pay taxes on their tax bill.

    Taxpayers can easily understand the concept of paying taxes on their income. But to tax Americans on income they couldn't retain because they had to pay state and local tax obligations turns logic on its head. Taxing tax payments is taxing income you ultimately didn’t receive.

    Ms. Labrea,

    Again, how was it not double taxation before? Before, you got a deduction, such that you reduced your tax burden by a small percentage of what you paid. For example, if you paid $10K in State taxes, and had a marginal tax rate of 10%, you are only relieving $1000 of that $10K you paid. Ergo, double taxation.

    The question remains, why should the rest of the country pay for taxes that only benefit one state?
