The boss is subjecting himself to watching CNN for sixteen hours straight today. He wanted something worse than being waterboarded again. 16 hours of CNN is literally the worst thing everyone could think of. Yes, that was proper use of the word literally.
But in the network’s defense, it’s not like there aren’t some moments of clarity. Like last night. While the left was melting down (see HuffPo Writer Makes Tax Reform About Race. Senator Tim Scott Shuts Him Down! and Rosie O’Donnell Offers Bribes to Senators in Desperate Fight Against Tax Reform), John King actually admitted the tax cut is going to help a lot of people.
“If you’re a working class family, a lot of people say, ‘oh, it’s only $200, oh, it’s only $300;’ if you’re a working class family living paycheck-to-paycheck—$200-300 is damn good money and you are grateful for it.”
Not everyone on the left got the memo.

See but if you take all the $80 that you're giving to Americans and combine it into one big pot to be spent by some large institution (we'll call it the gubment) that money can be used more efficiently to help lots of people, not just pay for a twice a month meal at McDs https://t.co/uGPbzsIYvH

Credit where credit is due: Every single Democrat in both the House and the Senate voted against the GOP tax monstrosity. Every single one.

All of this sets up 2018 to be very interesting. Not that I want to run when the head of my party has a 38% approval rating.
But I REALLY don’t want to run when my entire party is celebrating that they fought against letting Americans keep more of their money. You feel me?
Democrats have made it clear: your money isn’t yours. It belongs to government, and they LET YOU keep some of it. Can you really deny it?
