Listen to part 1 of this series on the GOP tax law's impact on states, with economist Stephen Moore of the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank.


Democrats who live in high-tax blue states are looking for ways around the new Republican tax law. New York is suing the federal government, and other states are considering plans to reclassify state taxes as charitable deductions, or get rid of state taxes in favor of a payroll tax paid by employers.

Here & Now's Robin Young speaks about the ideas with Dean Baker (@DeanBaker13), an economist with the left-leaning Center for Economic and Policy Research.

This segment aired on January 9, 2018.
