Trump’s tax cuts are blowing up in the Democrats smug little socialist faces. Every day it’s good news for Americans, bad news for liberalism (see Shock NYT Poll: Turns Out Americans Like Getting Tax Cuts and Apple CEO Tim Cook Discusses 20,000 New Jobs Created By Tax Cuts). The Democrats brilliant response? Shutting down the government. Over illegal immigration.
Of course though, like with all shutdowns, we all know who’s fault it is.
Democrats could hold a pro-shutdown presser in front of the Capitol in front of a lectern with a sign that reads "We Caused the Shutdown!"
Republicans would still get the blame.

Thankfully, Trump started the job with no f***s to give. Well, maybe not “thankfully.” It depends on the specific issue or tweet. But in the case, he’s calling out the real reason Democrats want to shut it down.
Tax reform has not been working well for the Democrats. The tax cuts are working much bigger and much faster than we ever thought possible.
They’ve been so good the Democrats would like to see a shutdown in order to get off that subject. That is not a good subject because of the way they’ve worked.
So now we wait. Though probably like the last shutdown, most American lives aren’t going to be affected all that much. People will bitch on Twitter. Eventually, a deal will be cut. Republicans will get the blame.
But perhaps if Trump repeats this often, that Democrats care more about illegal immigrants than the American people, it’ll stick. But he needs to stay focused. A constant drum beat of “Democrats are sore losers. Tax reform is winning. They’re desperately pro-illegal immigration. They care more about illegals than you, the American people.” Needs to be a morphine drip. It’s the only way it’ll work.
Otherwise, as already stated, Republicans will get blamed. By the “fake news” media.
But it’s important to know who is on whose side.
