The impending property tax write-off cap may do a lot toward ending the taxageddon because people aren't going to be able to write those off, and I don't see the House on its own being able to reverse that easily.

Because we have been indoctrinated into that thought.
The taxes, both direct and indirect, on gasoline are literally astronomical. Yet, when gas prices go up, who do we blame? The evil oil companies, who produce the gasoline, not the sainted government who does nothing to produce anything (other than misery). Both are responsible, and both should have a stake in our ire when we complain. In reality, the one who simply raises the prices without adding to the product should have a larger stake.
If this tax passes, it will likely be struck down and replaced with a less visible version... in which case, the evil phone companies will then be targeted, not the government that raised the price.
