Yeah, who do you write the checks to for property tax? Oh, wait you state. You are correct, the deep blue states with high property tax such as Illinois(almost bankrupt), New York, California, Connecticut etc. They will no longer be subsidized by the lower tax states. Fuck it, they are blue anyway. Who cares.

7. Pulling out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership






Quote:

Trump began his presidency by carrying out another key promise, withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a massive trade deal with Asia he had called a "potential disaster for our country." He has said his administration will secure new trade deals with America's Asian allies, though firm details have yet to emerge.

Meanwhile, the administration is at work trying to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico. A new round of negotiations are slated to be held in January, and it's possible Trump could decide to pull the U.S. from that deal as well.

8. Roll-back of some of Obama's Cuba policies








Quote:

Trump followed up on his pledge to roll back Obama's opening up of relations with Cuba, tightening travel and commercial ties with the communist island. He also placed new financial restrictions on Havana, amid concerns over a series of bizarre "sonic attacks" targeting U.S. diplomats in the country.

While the moves were seen as a clear crackdown by Trump on rapprochement with Cuba, much of Obama's policies toward Havana essentially remain intact.

Written by somebody who obviously doens't own property and doesn't realize the taxes that are paid to the city and state are DEDUCTIBLE from ones federal income taxes - well, until Trump.

9. Moving to repeal Obama's net neutrality rules







Quote:

In another blow to regulations enacted under Obama, the Federal Communications Commission voted to repeal its landmark net neutrality rules this month. The move drew ire from Democrats, consumer groups and tech companies, but was seen as a major win for advocates of less government oversight.

10. Fighting - and further degrading - ISIS







Quote:

Largely following Obama's strategy, Trump dealt major blows to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, forcing the terrorist group to retreat from its two self-declared capitals: Mosul and Raqqa, located in Iraq and Syria, respectively. Trump also expanded the military's authority to carry out air strikes in the Middle East, a factor some experts credit for his administration's progress against terrorism in the region.

Yay! Another boost for big business, ultimately losing freedom of information and internet access for the vast majority of U.S. citizens. You, go, Trump - make America really really great!

I do own property. I do realize who I pay. That was my point. See your scared to death that now people can no longer take those deductions who they going to go after. Which party is is that comes around and offers to lower your taxes? Yeah, your little upper class white guilt suburbs might not be so "blue" before long..
