Leftists are going nuclear over Donald Trump’s newly signed tax reform bill. But, do any of them actually know what’s in it? We have our doubts (see Chris Matthews Compares Republican Tax Cut Celebration to ‘North Korean Parade’ and Media Asks if GOP Tax Cuts Help 3 American Families. The Results Surprise Them…).
Believe it or not, the actual plan isn’t the Mad Max global collapse-inducing brainfart of Satan the left thinks it is. It’s actually pretty awesome.
If you’re making $50,000 or less, most families of four will not be paying any taxes at all.
Doubles the child tax credit from $1,000 to $2,000.
He’s lowering corporate taxes from 35% to 21%.
He keeps the Obama-era tax credits for clean energy.
Everybody’s favorite clever Kosher pedestrian, Ami Horowitz, took to the streets of New York City. Where he presented Trump’s tax reform bill to passers-by, but replaced the word “Trump” with “Bernie.” Not unlike Billy Mack changing his classic “Love is All Around Us” to “Christmas is All Around Us” for the holidays.
The results…really aren’t shocking at all.
Tribalism is a hell of a drug, ain’t it? When these people think the tax reform bill they’re hearing came from their haggard commie garden gnome idol? “It’s the greatest thing since soy milk and skinny jeans.” On the other hand, if you were to tell them the same details while letting them know they’re the product of people with “R’s” after their names?
Maybe the left will change their tune once the cut goes into effect and they notice those extra ducats in their paychecks. But, I wouldn’t hold your breath on that one. Like this video shows, the left’s heels are pretty well dug in against acknowledging the not-so-bad parts of Trump’s presidency.
