The Republican tax bill isn’t polling well.
That’s what virtually every center-left talking head says, anyway, over and over, like clockwork. But why? Might the reason be the overwhelming negative media coverage, along with the fact that literally nothing out of Washington is actually “polling well” these days?
Of course, if you asked liberals what they think of a “tax plan” presented by their socialist hero Bernie Sanders, well, it would likely be a whole different matter – even if the details of the “tax plan” were exactly the same as the Republican one.
That’s just what conservative commentator Ami Horowitz did when he went to the overwhelmingly liberal East Village to find out how liberals felt about the “Bernie” tax plan, the details of which just happened to be the same as the just-passed GOP tax plan.
And shocker of shockers – they were yuge fans.
“The Republicans recently voted on a new tax proposal, and, predictably, the Democrats didn’t like it,” Horowitz said. “But what if they thought the Republican plan was actually Bernie Sanders’ proposal? We presented them with the Republican tax plan and pretended that it was in fact Bernie’s plan.”
After asking interviewees how they felt about the eeeevil GOP tax plan (spoiler alert: they hated it, of course), Horowitz then brought up details of a “competing plan” supposedly presented by Sanders, except the “details” were the exact provisions of the Republican plan.
The same people who slammed the GOP plan called the Bernie plan “fantastic,” “a step in the right direction,” and “rational.” Provisions such as no taxes for families of four making under $50,000, a doubled child tax credit, clean energy tax credits, and mortgage holders of $750,000 or more paying more were applauded instead of condemned – all because they came from Bernie and not Trump, or something.
Even more surprising – what happened when Horowitz told them the truth:
