Senator Dianne Feinstein (D, CA) is complaining that the Trump tax reform bill hurts Americans.
Which Americans? Why, innocent and suffering people! Salt of the Earth type folk!
Like…millionaires in the richest districts of California.
Feinstein is outraged that the Republicans would pick on the poor, suffering citizens of Beverly Hills by closing their outrageously-high mortgage-deduction tax loophole.

California Senator Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the powerful Senate Judiciary Committee, is not happy with the tax cut bill Republicans in the House and Senate have agreed to. However, unlike most Democrats, Feinstein isn’t engaging in the usual attack her party unleashed on tax cut — that it will only help the rich — instead, she’s complaining that the bill would harm some of the wealthiest Californians.
On Sunday afternoon Feinstein tweeted, “The Republican tax bill caps the mortgage interest deduction at $750,000 for new mortgages. In California, seven counties have average home prices that are more than $750,000: Alameda, Marin, Orange, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara and Santa Cruz counties.”
The California counties Feinstein cited are some of the wealthiest in the country, and their property values reflect that fact.
The average home price in the United States is just under $200,000.
Feinstein lamenting higher taxes on some of the the wealthiest people in the country did not go unnoticed on social media.
One independent journalist on Twitter said that Democrats have become “the party of the rich.”
