RUBBING SALT IN THE WOUNDS: Giveaway to the rich is one of the biggest pieces of Build Back Better.

Sharing is Caring!

Let it be noted that one of the biggest items in the Build Back Better bill — its second-most-expensive provision — is its massive tax cut for the rich.

BBB raises the cap on deducting state and local taxes (SALT) on your federal return from $10,000 to $72,500, then gradually to $80,000.

That works out to $285 billion in tax cuts for the rich, notes the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget — which is more than the bill spends on paid family and medical leave, an item Democrats talk a lot more about. And it gives those high-end taxpayers nearly 50 times what far less wealthy Americans would get from its expanded child tax credits.
