I'd like to express a bravo and a boo for Rep. Stefanik. Thumbs up for the vote against the tax heist bill. Some cynics have suggested she might've gotten a hall pass because there were more than enough votes to pass it. In the spirit of the season, I'll concede that her concern over the state and local deductions was genuine. It would've been nice if she had been similarly disturbed by the damage being done to the ACA by the elimination of the individual mandate. I suppose that's a little boo for the sin of omission.
The bigger boo is for her vote against transparency back in March. The Democrats were pushing a bill to force the release of President Trump's taxes. He has said this tax bill will cost him "a fortune." From what I've read, there are many sweet perks in it that seem almost designed for him and his business. It would be nice to know for sure and not have to take his word for it.
