Congressman Peter King says he’s going to fight President Trump’s tax reform plan.
He told WOR’s “Len Berman and Todd Schnitt in the Morning” that the proposal wouldn’t allow people to deduct state and local taxes. King said that would negatively impact people he represents on Long Island.
“This would be a tax cut for most of the country, but it would be a tax increase to Long Island and our economy couldn’t sustain that,” King said.
King predicted there would be a coordinated effort of lawmakers from states like New York, New Jersey and California to fight against the plan. The congressman said he doesn’t see how the tax reform plan can pass in its current form, because of opposition from Republicans in those states.
