“The Trump administration and the Republican-led Congress have partnered to pass a new tax law that is a disaster for the people of New York City.
“This new law eliminates local deductions and the ability to deduct medical expenses, both of which will only increase the burden on those who are struggling to get by.
“A rushed, hyper-partisan tax plan that benefits the super rich at the expense of the sick is not what this city and this nation deserve,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
It is interesting that Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. cares for the people of New York City over the people of the Bronx who he is currently suppose to represent.
Are we looking at another Bill de Blasio who is looking at his possible future aspirations over his current job?
Borough President Diaz just how many residents of the Bronx use form 1040 or 1040A to itemize deductions, and how many use 1040EZ where the taxpayer can not itemize deduction? Just how many residents of the Bronx will actually be hurt from the new tax code that Democrats are trying to sabotage?
When you can come up with exact numbers, then say so. At least Comptroller Scott Stringer came up with 20 reasons, and projected numbers, as small as they are for a city of 8.5 million people.
