so now that its passed i guess it be up to states pick up spending that will be cut from them, which means higher taxes, on state side now. every time the federal government cuts taxes or programs the state property taxes go up. - face facts if you cut paying for things with one branch of government that means a different branch has to pay for it. at least federal income tax is something people can control but property taxes and state taxes along with rent is not something people can physical change. States are required to pay for the cost difference after federal government gives the monies to the state. - so more federal cuts the more state required to raise to cover that cost. it be good for states like California or any other state with huge sources of income because they will no longer be supplementing as much to the poorer states, which means those states have to kick in more monies on there own raising up property and income and state sales taxes.
