Brian Riedl writes at National Review Online about four states’ legal action to overturn a key piece of the 2017 federal tax reform.

Just when you thought politics in 2018 could not get any more bizarre, four states are now suing the federal government in hopes of mandating a $650 billion tax cut, of which 57 percent would go to the richest 1 percent of families. Rather than push for conventional legislation, the states are asserting that the U.S. Constitution requires this tax cut for the rich. One other thing: The lawsuit was filed by Democrats, not Republicans.

Specifically, the attorneys generals of New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Maryland have filed suit in federal court, arguing that the recent tax reform’s capping of the state and local tax (SALT) deduction at $10,000 per filer violates the Constitution. The lawsuit, a pure publicity stunt, is so frivolous and unserious it may as well have been written in crayon.

But don’t take my word for it. Even the AGs’ fellow liberals at ThinkProgress have called this “one of the stupidest lawsuits of the Trump era.” University of Iowa law professor Andy Grewal wrote, “If this lawsuit succeeds, I will post a video of myself eating every single page of the Internal Revenue Code, one-by-one.”
