[C]all for an end to the deductibility of mortgage interest above $500,000. The burden of paying this new tax would mostly fall on people who live in high cost “Blue” states and other wealthy swells who live in districts that voted overwhelmingly for Obama. The next order of business would be to reinstate the excess profits tax on the Hollywood’s movie and entertainment industry. Make the Democrats defend Kim Kardashian over local small business people. Continue with the theme of excess profits taxes and go after another unpopular sector of American society: lawyers. Tax contingency fees for legal judgments over $10 million and force Democrats to defend their rich lawyer allies. Finally, end the deductibility of local and state taxes so that the vast majority of Americans in lower tax states are not forced to subsidize the reckless and profligate spending of the “Blue” state politicians and public employee unions. If they want to persist with bankrupting their states, that’s fine, but the rest of us don’t need to help fund it.
