Oh Yeah, Trump's Removal of the SALT Deduction is Going to Force California to Lower Taxes and Become More Fiscally Responsible

The Washington Post reports:
For those who think California politics is on the far-left fringe of the national spectrum, stand by. The next election season, already well underway here, will showcase a younger generation of Democrats that is more liberal and personally invested in standing up to President Trump’s Washington than those leaving office.
Here in the self-labeled “state of resistance,” the political debate is being pushed further left without any sign of a Republican renaissance to serve as a check on spending and social policy ambitions. Even some Republicans are concerned about the departure of Gov. Jerry Brown (D), who proved to be fiscally cautious after inheriting a state seven years ago in deep recession.
The race to succeed him, as well as contests for U.S. Senate and statewide offices, probably will feature a November ballot exclusively filled with Democrats. The top two primary finishers compete in the state’s general election regardless of party, setting up several races between the Democrats’ left and even-more-left wings in the nation’s most-populous state, races that could signal the direction of the party’s future.
But this on the ground report won't alter the views of Trump fanboy's who are in the Trump Delusion Cloud.

Trump is driving not only California but large parts of the country leftward, in this sense Trump in office is worse than Reagan.

  2. "Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard."

    I am so happy for Cali. Their dreams are coming true.

  3. There is little doubt at this point that he will be cleanly labelled one of the worst sitting presidents ever.

    The only question at this point is how high he rises in the ranks of worst and eho he eclipses
