CNN’s Jake Tapper sometimes does the right thing and reports the news instead of running on emotion – like most journalists today.
In a recent interview, Tapper got socialist Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders to admit the GOP tax cuts are actually a ‘good thing.’
From Daily Wire:
On Sunday, CNN’s “State of the Union” host Jake Tapper put Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in an uncomfortable position, forcing him to acknowledge that the middle-class tax cuts in the GOP bill are a good thing:
TAPPER: Next year, 91% of middle-income Americans will receive a tax cut. Isn’t that a good thing?
SANDERS: Yeah, it is a very good thing, and that’s why we should have made the tax breaks for the middle class permanent. But what the Republicans did is make the tax breaks for corporations permanent, the tax cuts for the middle class temporary, and, according to the Tax Policy Center … at the end of ten years, 83% of the benefits go to the top 1%, 60% of the benefits go to the top one tenth of 1%. Meanwhile, at the end of 10 years, well over 80 million Americans will be paying more in taxes.
More from The Hill:
Republicans have boasted about the tax cuts Americans would receive initially in the plan. However, Democrats and critics have pointed out those cuts will not last forever, pointing out that all individual tax cuts are due to expire by 2025, while corporate rate cuts were made to be permanent in the plan.
Tax cuts are a good thing?
Bernie must be off his meds!
