Biden hasn’t even been in office three months, and he’s already bailing out businesses and trying to raise taxes.
Of course, this is typical for the Democrat party.
But Joe Biden was in for a shock when Democrat House members from the northeast said no to this.
First, it was the $1.9 trillion COVID “relief” bill that wasn’t actually going to give “relief” to anyone.
Next on Biden’s agenda, a $4 trillion socialist welfare wish list that includes over $3 trillion in tax increases.
Who convinced the President that $3 trillion in tax increases was a good idea is anyone’s guess.
Still, he seems to be thrilled with the idea.
Biden knows that in order to get the bill to move through the House of Representatives, he cannot lose more than five Democrat votes.
Unfortunately for Biden, it looks like there are already two defectors.
Congressman Josh Gottheimer of New Jersey and Tom Suozzi of New York stated that they will not support the bill unless it includes repealing the State and Local Tax (aka SALT) deduction cap included in the 2017 Trump tax cut bill.
Gottheimer said in a statement, “No SALT, no dice. It’s got to be responsible, and both parties need to be at the table. This can’t just be jammed through without input and consideration from the other side.”
“We need to be careful not to do anything that’s too big or too much in the middle of a pandemic and an economic crisis,” Gottheimer went on to say.
Congressman Suozzi echoed Gottheimer’s demands, “I’m not voting for any changes in the tax code unless we reinstate SALT as part of the deal.”
Big spending Democrats from blue states loved the SALT deduction because it allowed blue state residents to write off their state and local taxes from their federal taxes – in other words forcing red state taxpayers to subsidize blue state tax-and-spend liberals.
If Democrats get their way and repeal the SALT deduction cap, it will only raise the spending totals in Biden’s next so-called “relief” or “infrastructure” bill.
Joe Manchin, Senator from West Virginia, wants the bill to be “paid” for by raising taxes.
Manchin is also the rogue Senator that Biden has been courting because he doesn’t agree the filibuster should be cast aside like the rest of his party does.
Should Democrats repeal the SALT cap, Americans will see even more oppressive tax increases.
Of course, none of this seems to matter to the Democrats, all they want is total control and for Americans to march in lockstep with their liberal propaganda.
