State Taxes Are Too High

FreedomWorks Vice President of Advocacy Noah Wall released the following statement regarding the states with bad tax policy who are resisting conservative tax reform:

“The state and local tax deduction forces lower-tax states to pay the federal taxes of the states with terrible tax policy. Politicians in these blue states are worried that if this special break is overturned, they’ll get thrown out of office. They are afraid that new, conservative leaders will be elected in their states to reform their state tax policy. They’re concerned they won’t be able to continue raising state taxes even higher.

“A simpler, flatter, fairer tax code at the federal level is a great thing, and it will be even better if it also applies pressure to blue states to move in a conservative direction.”
