The House GOP tax bill reduces the amount of home debt on which interest can be deducted from $1 million to $500,000. This bill also doubles the standard deduction, meaning that 94% of taxpayers would not itemize. Do you support these provisions?

I would if it was phased in over time or delayed for a year to provide time for people affected to adjust their situations.

There are a lot of disgusting things in that bill and a few good ideas. These are two of the good ideas. I would support eliminating the mortgage interest deduction completely in concert with raising the standard deduction to offset it. This would give renters some relief. It would also reduce the amount of morons financing boats, cars & vacations with their home equity.

Yes, the government shouldn't be artificially pushing people to buy homes through tax benefits.

Economics is not my strong suit. Can someone explain this without economics jargon?

They are baby steps in the right direction.
