The Democrats And The Media Are Eating So Much Crow Right Now

Nearly every story quotes a variation of Mrs. Pelosi's line that the bill is "wholesale robbery of the middle class."” Mr. Schumer continues to claim the reform helps "only the wealthiest few." These are Trumpian-size whoppers, which the media eagerly repeats. Yet even the liberal Tax Policy Center has acknowledged that 90% of the middle class will get a tax cut in 2018, and that the average cut will be $1,600.

USA Today was so desperate to depict the bill as a tax hike that its analysis of "5 household situations" included a childless single renter earning $1 million a year, paying $50,000 in state and local taxes, and claiming $40,000 in charitable deductions. The paper triumphantly pointed out that this downtrodden soul would pay $1,887 more in taxes. And therefore have to forgo a bottle of Chateau Lafite-Rothschild.


PS: Polls show most Americans don't like the new law, but that is because most Americans have bought the lies about the bill's effects. They will soon find out the truth, and that ain't gonna be good for Dems.... BEEP BEEP.
