How many senior citizens on this forum support Trump? Better yet, how many senior citizens on this forum who consider themselves members of the middle class and who live in New York, California, Connecticut, Wisconsin, New Jersey, Illinois, Maryland, or Minnesota still support Trump? Those are the states with the highest state income taxes. If you live in any one of those states, you may want to re-examine your position. During the election campaign, I had a few friends who supported Trump. I urged them they were voting against their own interests. That is even more true today. Allow me to explain. Trump has promised that his tax reform proposals are designed to benefit the middle class. Because his proposals lack a great deal of specifics -- for example, what are income levels of his three tax brackets? -- we don't really know that for sure. But let us assume that is true, but will this benefit all the members of the so-called middle class as he intends? The millions of senior citizens, middle class type, living in the aforementioned states should consider this. Most people know that in Trump's plan there will be no deduction for state income taxes. That alone is huge. Seniors, obviously, have significantly more health issues than younger people, millions with serious health issues. Of course, that applies to all senior citizens regardless of where they live. For those on Obamacare insurance premiums are going up and up as is out-of-pocket expenses. What is less known is this: Trump's tax reform plan eliminates the medical deduction. His plan is not law, yet, and many of his ideas may end up on the cutting room floor once Congress gets to work on tax reform. That is not the point. The point is, what are Trump's objectives? Who does he want to benefit from his tax reform proposals? Who has he deemed will pay for the benefits accrued by others? The answer to the last question: Middle class senior citizens living in those eight states, some of the most populous states in the country. Trump plans to reward the rural and southeastern states for their vote. There is one other major difference between senior citizens and junior citizens. Senior citizens vote. They don't have anything else to do.
