Tax cuts are akin to raping the poor. That’s the way the liberal mind works. Never mind logic or facts or allowing people to keep more of their own money!
From Free Beacon:
A guest on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” argued Sunday that the Republican tax reform bill is akin to raping poor people.
Host Joy Reid had on former Republican policy adviser Bruce Bartlett to give his take on the GOP tax bill, which passed the Senate late Friday. Bartlett once worked as an adviser to Ronald Reagan and as a Treasury Department official in the George H. W. Bush administration, before he became an outspoken critic of the GOP and embraced Keynesian economics in the late 2000s.
More on the tax cuts, which includes getting rid of Obamacare’s individual mandate, per The Hill:
Senate Republicans have approved the repeal of ObamaCare’s individual mandate as part of their tax-cut bill, a major step forward toward ending an unpopular part of the healthcare law.
“Families ought to be able to make decisions about what they want to buy and what works for them –not the government,” Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) said, hailing the accomplishment.
“I believe if people don’t want to buy the Obamacare insurance, they shouldn’t have to pay a tax penalty to the IRS.”
The Senate tax bill must still be reconciled with House legislation that does not include the mandate’s repeal. But that is unlikely to be a major issue given support in the GOP conference for repealing the mandate.
No Democrats in either chamber voted for the GOP tax bills.
It’s unclear what repeal of the mandate will mean for ObamaCare.
How are tax cuts hurting poor people?
In what world does that make sense?
Ridding Americans of Obamacare’s individual mandate and letting them keep more cash in their pocket is only beneficial. Does that really need to be explained?
