No matter whether people have lots more money in their paychecks, Democrats still insist that the Trump/GOP tax cuts are hurting the middle class. Rep. Brian Higgins, (D-NY), said “The American people are being bamboozled by rhetoric that doesn’t match the reality. The reality is that this tax cut disproportionately, clearly, unequivocally, benefits the very, very, wealthy. And this is a continuing ploy, scheme, scam on the part of House Republican leadership to deliberately mislead people into believing that these tax cuts will go toward middle America.”

Try telling that to the people who’ve received bonuses of $1,000, $2,000 and sometimes $3,000. Try telling that to the people who’ve just gotten their first pay increase since the 2006 midterms. Try telling that to the people whose companies just improved their benefit packages as a direct result of the Trump/GOP tax cuts.

Democrats hint that the Trump administration is fudging the tax tables. What’s worse is that they’re making the accusation without a hint of proof. It’s increasingly obvious that Democrats will say anything to win control of the House of Representatives. This is an example of the Democrats’ dishonesty:

Senate Finance Committee ranking member Ron Wyden (D-OR) and House Ways and Means Committee ranking member Richard Neal (D-MA) have asked the Government Accountability Office to take a look at the new withholding tables. “The real question with respect to withholding is being straight with the American people, and if you play games with this in order to advance a political agenda, [then] Americans get hurt,” Wyden said.

Sen. Wyden doesn’t have anything to go on that suggests the Trump administration is fudging the withholding tables but he’s stopping just short of accusing the Trump administration of dishonesty. It’s worth remembering that Sen. Wyden is the idiot that said this:

Sen. Wyden foolishly said that “There is no magical growth fairy.” Apparently, Sen. Wyden hasn’t heard about this thing called capitalism. Whenever it’s been tried, it’s produced growth that’s pulled people out of poverty. This isn’t to be confused with crony capitalism. When crony capitalism is tried, government gets involved. When profitable markets are identified, there’s no need to provide a government incentive to get entrepreneurs to invest in those products.

Sen. Wyden is a socialist so he isn’t familiar with the wealth-creating principles of capitalism. Don’t forget that Democrats insulted everyone’s intelligence, first by telling people that they weren’t getting a tax cut, then by insisting that the big increases they were seeing in their paychecks were “crumbs.” Let this be a reminder of the difference:
