Many Congressmembers From Northeast Don’t Like The GOP Tax Plan

The tax plan unveiled by Republicans in the House of Representatives will disproportionately raise taxes on for those living in Northeast states like New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. Many lawmakers from the region, including Republicans, are against the plan. For high tax states with high housing costs, the GOP plan is sobering. It would eliminate deductions for state and local income taxes while also capping property deductions. For example, New Yorkers making $75,000-$100,000 per year will have to pay taxes on $10,000 more in income.
