Boo ******* Hoo. And I wonder how many people you actually know.

The fact is - republicans have engineered the tax legislature that benefits the wealthy residing in the low tax states e.g. Trump and Florida. This is likely to backfire on them in the 2020 election when a lot more GOP senators will be up for the re-election than in 2018.
Then let's end all means tested welfare and get those deadbeat states to take care of thier own.

Interestingly enough, red states, which tend to advocate for a lesser influence by the federal government, are much more dependent on the federal government than blue states. Blue states combined to form an average ranking of 18.3 (with 1 being most dependent and 50 being least dependent), while red states combined to rank 33.2 overall.

Same as Al Gore supposedly saying he invented the Internet, but it hasn't stopped people from saying it.

My home is valued at 250k which here is an average ranch home. My real estate tax was 1900 last year. For the first time in years I took the standard deduction and got back 1k. Overall I confirmed I took home about 7% more than I did last year.

. Oh. Like when Harry Reid falsely claimed Mitt Romney hadn't paid any taxes in many, many years. And when caught in the lie, he just grinned and said "We won, didn't we?"
