Listen to part 2 of this series on the GOP tax law's impact on states, with economist Dean Baker of the left-leaning Center for Economic and Policy Research.


Lawmakers in high-cost, high-tax blue states are looking for ways around the provision in the new Republican tax law that limits deductions on local taxes. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said last week he would sue the Trump administration over the tax law, and Democrats in other states are considering reclassifying local taxes as charitable deductions.

Here & Now's Robin Young gets a conservative counterpoint to these blue-state plans from Stephen Moore (@StephenMoore) of the Heritage Foundation.
