Re: Edward McCaffery

Edward McCaffery wrote an op-ed about how the new stimulus bill includes a tax break for the 1%. He said, "Under the change, our rich taxpayer couple... can now deduct an unlimited amount of 'excess losses' in real estate against income from other sources. So now real estate moguls with lucrative day jobs or bountiful capital gains from other investments can go back to living tax-free."
