#TaxReform puts #California’s high tax rates in the spotlight, and #Progressives on the hot seat

Screenshot 2017-12-11 at 06.54.49The Republicans in Congress are on the verge of enacting a historic tax reform program that will lead to radical change in California politics.

The law taking shape will eliminate much of the federal deductions for state taxes and mortgage interest.

California voters initially will react with fury, but when the dust settles, they will then turn on state and local governments to ask how all this tax money is being spent and who approved these programs and taxes.

California taxpayers have been a sleeping giant since 1978, the year of Proposition 13, the last, great, statewide tax revolt. But the coming federal tax bill will create a national political earthquake, rumbling from California.
