I am Running for Office and Tax Reform Explained From A Math Challenged Person. By Geniusofdespair

I am thinking seriously of running for office.

I want to run against Democrat Nicholas Duran in State House District 112. I want to foil his campaign mainly because of his vote against Jose Javier Rodriguez.  Nick: When a Democrat finds themselves voting with Daphne Campbell they should stop and think about what they are doing.  Besides, I wouldn't even recognize the guy and he is my Representative.  I just need a good photo of myself and someone to manage my campaign for free and I will be ready to go. Oh, and I need a cool sounding PAC name. I would think the Republicans would help me on all those fronts.

 My platform: I like unions, no new taxes except on Rick Scott's house, yes to environmental protection, cupcakes (The good kind, not from Costco or Publix. There would be a choice of fluffy chocolate or pink strawberry with red wedding cake) at all my events, no to anything for big sugar and FPL. No to pumping your damn sea level rise water into Biscayne Bay or connected water-bodies. 

My first move would be no sales tax for buying kicks if you have Florida ID. Everyone needs good kicks. 

My slogan: Sea Level Rise Ain't for Sissies.

Need to know: Who is going to pay my airfare to Tallahassee? Oh, and I need someone to bake cupcakes.


I suppose I am not the right one to ask about tax reform but here it is.

I hear they are going to take away medical deductions. To most of us that is a big loss unless you are super healthy and don't pay for medical insurance.

They are going to take away the tax deduction you pay for State and City taxes. That is a big loss for people who live in New York City and suburban people who work in the Cities. They pay taxes to both the State and the City in addition to the Feds.

So what if they double the individual deduction, the elimination of the medical deduction, the State and City tax deduction, and the mortgage deduction -- in combination  -- is better for most people/families than the increase of the individual deductions.

Anyway, no matter what they do, I expect my taxes to go up with the tax overhaul. Yours might go down by a couple of $100 a year if you are really lucky. Trump's base probably does not pay taxes so he doesn't have to worry about it.

"I'm with her." Congrats for making 2018 the year we really work to keep him honest.

On the tax reform issue, I don't know what you could do about it as a state representative. I'd love for you to explain further.

How will you not support Big Sugar when you are Pro-Cupcake? Seems like a mighty slim line you are straddling.

have you no decency? Why challenge a potentially good candidate with minutiae. Annoying aren't you.

I often mix topics. I was just commenting on the Federal tax proposals I know the State has no jurisdiction.
