  •  I'd feel better if they took it off the table (4+ / 0-)

    I don't trust either side to negotiate changes to the deduction that don't harm the middle class.

    Wait until we have more proof that Obama is willing to negotiate changes that don't harm the middle class before we trust him with anything like Social Security or mortgage interest deductions.

    Please stand by. I'm looking for a new sig line.

    •  If you phase out the mortgage deduction (0+ / 0-)

      (or phase it down to $12K) you make homeownership impractical and unaffordable on the coasts.  You'll transfer home ownership into the hands of the extremely wealthy and create and entire country of renters and landowners.

      I really don't think that's what the Obama administration has in mind.

      Obama is not a dark-skinned anti-war socialist who offers free healthcare. You're thinking of Jesus.
