I know, you guys have nothing so just have to throw out turds and try to pretend you are making an argument
    Actually they haven't passed "budget bills" they've passed temporary spending bills. As for the rest of your post you're repeating exactly the point I've made several times; funding for the wall has to be included. Trump, like every other sane person (which excludes most Dems and Trumpophobes) know that once the shutdown is over the Dems will forget the word "wall" exists.

    I am not rich. Here is the rub just so you can understand it. I fall into the upper middle class in a blue state. The current Trump tax code is not designed to make me happy. In fact, they purposely went after me because in my income range it is highly likely that I am a Democrat. You know, educated. It is for the people at the top. After hearing about Romneys tax rate, Buffets tax rate, Trumps tax rate you still don't get it, I can only hope you are smart enough to make a living.

For the first time in my life as an adult, I owe the Feds a grand. Every other year I get back 3-8 grand. Not this year.

    Now if I had passive income or investment income, I would likely have paid less in total. But I don't. So Trump and Ryan just sent a big F U to the blue states. Just wait until 60-70 million people see the affect of this debacle.
    No you did not have the same deductions and you know it. If Trump made the same mistake he would be called a liar. In 2018 you were not able to take the high state taxes paid to California as a deduction. Doubt 60-70 million people fall into your category. BTW- get a new tax accountant to advise you.

    You are right, you get an A for understanding the difference between the previous scheme and the new one. Of course, I assumed that my readers would understand that all the costs I incurred that were once deductions also showed up this year letting me compare the schemes as apples to apples. I can see that the point was not clear enough for some of the students in the class, thank you for letting me clear that up for the slower learners.
