With the midterm elections looming like Kevin Spacey outside a Boys Club, Democrats are hoping to win back a majority in the House and Senate. Naturally, if the left were to accomplish that, they’d go about undoing Trump’s accomplishments and replacing them with collectivist claptrap.
DNC Vice Chair, Keith Ellison, confirmed as much when the question of the Trump tax cuts came up. Have a listen:
DNC Vice Chair Keith Ellison dodged four times when asked Sunday night if his party would repeal tax cuts if they won a majority in Congress.
“The fact is working people did get something,” Steve Kornacki explained. “Is the Democratic message to those working folks that you can keep the tax cut from Donald Trump, or is the message repeal the tax cut?”
Ellison said he believes the message to “rich folks” is “repeal” as they got a larger proportion of the cuts, but he did not address what the message would be to the working class.
“But what about the tax cuts that folks got in their paychecks?” Kornacki pressed.
Ellison argued that the tax cuts are problematic because they would add to deficit spending. He also called the working class cuts “small money.”
Notice the various tells in Ellison’s non-responses. “I mean the tax cuts are only temporary anyway. The fact is low taxes are bad for the deficit. Besides, it’s not even that much money in the first place.” It’s not hard to see where Keith’s going with this.
Leftists envision the government as being like a ski-masked guy with a gun at an ATM. Sure, stealing and threats of violence are morally abhorrent and all, but those Argentinians could really use a new clown school. We’ve also got to figure out why gays love booze so much. Why lesbians pack a huge paunch. You know, important stuff.
Of course, the Democrats still have to get a majority first. Which very well could happen. Then again, methinks a party hellbent on putting their hands in other people’s wallets, confiscating boomsticks, and regulating every bowel movement in America has their work cut out for them.
