Diversity is Strangling The United States

Diversity is a good thing, until it comes to politics. Ever since Republicans took control of both houses and the Presidency in the 2016 elections, congress has been unable to pass any meaningful legislation.

Affordable Care Act – not fixed.
GOP has not passed any laws easing firearm restrictions.
Tax reform has stalled, which is an excellent example of opposing sides strangling the nation.

President Trump wants a tax reform bill that would cut certain write-offs. One of those write-offs is being able to write the interest paid on your home mortgage off income taxes. California and New York oppose the bill. Without the support of Representatives from from New York and California, it is unlikely the bill will pass. So, the rest of the nation is held hostage because high income states enjoy certain tax write-offs?
