Gov. Brown Says Tax Vote Will Cost California GOP In Congress

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – Gov. Jerry Brown says some California Republicans in Congress will lose their seats if they back a tax plan that eliminates a state and local tax deduction used by many Californians.

Brown says California Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives are “like a herd of sheep” when it comes President Donald Trump’s wishes.

Brown’s remarks Friday come a day after the U.S. House passed a $4 trillion budget that paves the way for passing a $1.5 trillion tax cut. All 14 California Republicans supported it.

Some Republicans in other high-tax states such as New York and New Jersey rejected it over the proposal to eliminate the state and local deduction.

Democrats see defeating a handful of California Republicans as a key to winning back the U.S. House in 2018.

    Funny, Jerry Brown is so ignorant he’s never met a tax he didn’t impose on the people of the state. Did the citizens of this state get to vote to increase the gas tax by 12 cents for gas and 20 cents for diesel? No. Did the citizens get to vote to increase their highest in the nation registration fees? No. Did the people get to vote on making the state a sanctuary state for ILLEGALS? No. Jerry and the liberal socialists in the congress are completely out of touch with the people but very in touch with socialism.
