“I spent the last three days actually looking at this $10,000 cap on property taxes and I came to the only conclusion I think anyone who really looks at it can come too to, and that is that we just got a huge win for middle class taxpayers even in high-tax states like mine,” MacArthur told Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures.”
