The Blue State BluesSummary of the bill is if you live in a state that voted republican you have to pay higher taxes, even though you make less money.In other words, the various tax brackets would apply to residents in
certain regions at higher income levels versus other parts of the

earnings in Omaha. The bill is called the Tax Equity Act, but a more
accurate title would be the Blue State Tax Preference Act.
