Dem Rep. Jerry Nadler of New York unveiled a bold new tax proposal on Twitter on Wednesday that declared, “No should ever be taxed twice on the same income” and “It’s not fair and it’s not just”:
No one should ever be taxed twice on the same income. It's not fair and it's not just.

LOL. Does he even have a clue as to what he just suggested?
So…states should abolish their income taxes entirely?
This is a mess, sir. It's not what you meant to say. https://t.co/CmTblIaE9a

“TAX CUTS FOR THE RICH!”:
Here's Nadler demanding TAX CUTS FOR THE RICH! The SALT cap they want to repeal is $10k. Anyone who needs to write off more than $10k in state and local taxes is rich. Dems like the deduction though because it forces all of us to subsidize confiscatory tax rates in blue states. https://t.co/je8SBXncaT

We’re pretty sure it would get Nancy Pelosi’s endorsement:
This would directly benefit Nancy Pelosi, like a LOT. https://t.co/ZroatsTw64

Paging Jeff Bezos, get on this right now:
GP You mean like the double-taxation of corporations?
Or the wealth tax bill that plans on double taxing? https://t.co/U8yqTn7GrU

Get rid of all the taxes!
C Corp/ LLCs
Cigarette and soda taxes
I had no idea Democrats were so excited about getting rid of all these taxes! https://t.co/pLGfCLwe5P

But, alas, we will not get Rep. Nadler bold plan passed anytime soon:
That aside, there is simply no good reason that I, as a Floridian, should pay more for the federal government so that New York can add local services I don’t get without richer taxpayers having to feel it. This is a losing case, especially for the Democratic Party.
