Trump's tax plan passed the House by a 227-205 vote. For many middle- and upper-class Californians this bill will cause you to pay more in taxes.

These California representatives voted to increase your taxes:

Yea R LaMalfa, Doug CA 1st
Yea R Cook, Paul CA 8th
Yea R Denham, Jeff CA 10th
Yea R Valadao, David CA 21st
Yea R Nunes, Devin CA 22nd
Yea R McCarthy, Kevin CA 23rd
Yea R Knight, Steve CA 25th
Yea R Royce, Ed CA 39th
Yea R Calvert, Ken CA 42nd
Yea R Walters, Mimi CA 45th
Yea R Hunter, Duncan CA 50th

We Californians need to remember this in 2018.

Since Californians love taxes and voted for the nation's highest state income tax these could all be future senate candidates! The house tax bill will also lower taxes for many moderate income renters who do not itemize and take the standard deduction. This is a fantastic bill for taxpayers who do not file Form 1040 Schedule A since the standard deduction for couples is $24,000 instead of $12,600.

Except that anyone who owns a home in California that has been purchased in the last 15 years is likely using Schedule A. In general, this is not good for most Californians if passed. For the CA GOP reps that voted for this, it was party over the state.

Granger MacDonald, chairman of the National Assn. of Home Builders, says the GOP plan “abandons the middle-class taxpayers in favor of high-income Americans and wealthy corporations… [It] eviscerates existing housing tax benefits.”

62% of California’s likely voters are homeowners. It’s hard to believe that they’d be happy their deductions were sacrificed so corporate taxes could be substantially cut.

And they’ll be voting next November. Corporations won’t be.

Maybe now the profligate spenders will take notice. Their free spending days now costs us dearly as we can no longer escape some of the damage State spending does. Stop spending money on illegals and deadbeats at our expense. Did you hear that Sacramento?
