Rocci Stucci and Matt Locke breakdown why residents in the highest taxed states in the country have misplaced their anger.

The guys discussed blue-collar workers who should benefit from the tax plan and those who blame Republicans for higher taxes, when in fact, it's Democratic policies that have largely dominated in larger cities such as New York, Washington D.C, Los Angeles, and Chicago.

According to the Tax Foundation, these are the cities with the highest combined state and local sales tax rates in the country:

  1. Seattle, WA – 9.6%
  2. Oakland, CA – 9.5%
  3. Chicago, IL – 9.25% (10.25% as of Jan. 1, 2016)
  4. Memphis, TN – 9.25%
  5. Nashville, TN – 9.25%
  6. Los Angeles, CA – 9.0%
  7. Long Beach, CA – 9.0%
  8. New Orleans, LA – 9.0%
  9. New York, NY – 8.88%
  10. San Jose, CA – 8.75% (tie)

    San Francisco, CA – 8.75% (tie)
