Bush's tax panel would limit break for homeowners...

"A tax reform proposal agreed upon Tuesday by President Bush's advisory panel would eliminate the federal deduction for state and local taxes and sharply limit the tax break for home mortgage interest."

1. Another hit for the middle class
I don't feel too bad about that right now though, because I don't itemize and don't own a house.
