If you voted for irresponsible spending at your state level, then live with the results. Don't make other citizens of fiscally responsible states subsidize your poor judgement in state elected representatives. States that operate their governments efficiently and don't have state or city income taxes should have to pick up NY, Calif,Ct,RI,MD,NJ Ma, IL,Wa,Or etc... tab. When they deduct these state taxes from their Federal Taxes they put a greater unfair burden on citizens of no state income tax states. They voted for these high tax waste and spend policies. Let them live with their decision and votes.
