The Deduction for State and Local Taxes

I didn’t see this thought there, but I’ve always felt that state and local governments are better suited to address the needs of people (the needs of 25,000 are better managed than 25,000,000, and those better managed than 250,000,000). So by creating larger state and local systems, we become more effective in identifying and serving, and leave the federal government to work towards the national interest.

I know it’s not the most “liberal” perspective, but it’s just common sense.
