In attempting to slam the GOP tax bill, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) pointed out that it would not help those who are attempting to buy homes that cost more than $750K.
The Republican tax bill caps the mortgage interest deduction at $750,000 for new mortgages. In California, seven counties have average home prices that are more than $750,000: Alameda, Marin, Orange, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara and Santa Cruz counties. #GOPTaxScam

That sure is an unusual line of attack for a Democrat to be using.
Please, won't someone think of the Marin County mansion ownershttps://t.co/8EuGZC8Jqx

Democrats: this tax plan benefits the rich too much!
Also Democrats: this tax plan doesn’t give enough benefits to the rich! https://t.co/BNwUBt8mRy

If they stick with it, this critique is going to present a messaging problem for the Democrats. https://t.co/S17tD2lAQb

This type of message is very problematic to Democrats.
A $750K cap on mortgage interest deduction is a problem… that’s called rich in 99.9% of this country. https://t.co/moApc9hfHB
