Grassley Says Democrats Are Being Inconsistent Wanting To Do Away With State and Local Tax Deductions
(Washington) — U-S Republican Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa addressed the issue of eliminating the state and local tax deduction as being proposed by Democratic members of Congress, along with the Biden administration, during his most recent conversation with Iowa media as part of his weekly news conference. Grassley says the idea to do away with the deduction will only benefit those within a larger income brackets. Grassley says by doing so, Iowa will be subsidizing other states. He says the idea is counter-productive to what Democrats are always claiming that the most wealthy should be taxed at an even higher rate.
Grassley says the Democrats are being inconsistent with their desire to abandon the tax deduction.
