Yep - the only number that matters is the 'total tax owed' line and that

will be less for almost everyone. Some in high tax states that got huge mortgage interest rate breaks in the past may pay more, as will the extremely wealthy who will lose both those deductions and the fact that the highest tax brackets didn't change quite as much. There is tremendous misinformation about this tax deduction being for the 'wealthy'. Corporations ARE getting a huge tax break and that part of the narrative is true and some will think that is a good thing and some will think it is a bad thing depending on your personal economic beliefs. I suppose if you include corporations in 'the wealthy' then you could certainly spin it that way.
