“White House digs in on eliminating state and local tax deduction”


“The White House is maintaining a hard line on wiping out a deduction for state and local taxes as part of tax reform, despite efforts in Congress to negotiate a compromise on the issue.

“The president’s been clear about his position, and we’re moving forward with the framework that we’ve laid out,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said today when asked whether the administration was open to negotiation.” MORE
