Before we begin, let me share some rather hysterical news with you about the Left’s push to defeat the tax bill.
Theamericanwarrior.com published a story titled: “Pelosi bails on tax cut protest after only handful of activists show up”.
It reads: “A handful of folks are really steamed that Republican lawmakers are planning to lower taxes, and they gathered in [a] tiny conference room on Capitol Hill where House Minority Speaker Nancy Pelosi was slated to speak Monday. But the demonstration was so weak, MSNBC reports, Pelosi didn’t even bother to show up.”
“’These protests have never been like what we saw with the healthcare law,’ an MSNBC reported said as a camera man panned the crowd of a couple dozen mulled about in self-scheduling conference room 2456.”
Looking at the video showing the pathetically small crowd, I can’t help but to think back to some of Hillary Clinton’s rallies where an embarrassingly small amount of people actually bothered to show up.
The MSNBC reporter may have said that these kind of protests are never quite like the healthcare law ones, but even he should admit that this is pathetic. This kind of protest may not be as passionate as the ones for healthcare law, but if Pelosi didn’t even bother to show up, it just tells you how pathetic that protest was.
And what makes it more hilarious is the apocalyptic tone Pelosi used last week when talking about the tax bill. At a Capitol Hill press conference, Pelosi was asked the following question by a reporter: “Minority leader, at this news conference and on the floor you, Democrats talk about this bill often in very apocalyptic terms, but isn’t really what’s going on that many people are getting a very modest tax cut, and some people are getting a tax increase, while a lot of this is also going to business but it’s not the end of the world?”
To which Pelosi responded with: “No, it is the end of the world. This, healthcare, the debate on healthcare is life-death. This is Armageddon. This is a very big deal. Because you know why? There’s really a very hard way to come back from this. They take us farther, more deeply into debt. What can you do but raise taxes?”
Boy, there’s a lot to cover here just from that quote. Let’s start from the beginning.
I just love whenever the Left makes apocalyptic claims about things Trump and/or Republicans do. It just goes to show just how scared they are of this bill passing and how necessary it is to pass it. They wouldn’t be saying that if they didn’t have much to lose. And what’s one of the bigger things they lose? That’s what brings us to the next part.
Pelosi mentions healthcare. That the debate on healthcare is life-death. Why does she mention it? Because part of the tax bill eliminates the Obamacare mandate that essentially forces people to buy healthcare or pay a fine.
Eliminating the mandate will almost certainly mark the beginning of the end of Obamacare unless the mandate is restored. And that’s precisely why the Left is so deathly afraid of the bill. It further destroys Obama’s legacy.
Moving on to the last part of her response, she mentions debt. That this bill will take us farther into debt. I find it rather funny that after 8 years of Obama, this is the moment that she chooses to have any sort of "concern" for the national debt.
The Congressional Budget Office estimated the tax bill would add $1.7 trillion to national debt over the next decade. But, according to Breitbart: “The CBO’s estimates, however, do not account for any additional economic growth that could arise from tax reform”. In that decade, the government could make more money with a stronger economy and that additional $1.7 trillion would be insignificant if not effectively cancelled out.
Now, I’ve been talking about how Pelosi was presumably so embarrassed by the small crowd of protesters that she decided against attending the event, but I haven’t quite talked about if people really like the bill. Well, that’s where the Fake News media comes in.
According to CNBC: “Nearly half of Americans oppose GOP tax bill ahead of final votes, poll says”.
Ah, yes. The holy polls have shown us the way the American people think once again and they have never been wrong in the past. According to a poll ran by Monmouth University, 47% of people surveyed said they disapprove of the bill, with 26% of them saying they approve, 19% having no opinion on it and 8% saying they want to wait to draw a conclusion until they saw a final bill.
Another poll run by, funny enough, CNBC’s All-American Economic Survey said that 70% of people “believe their taxes in the next couple of years will either stay the same or increase.” Well either 70% of the people surveyed are massive idiots or these people are lying about how many people believe this garbage.
I believe most people understand the Left’s efforts to undermine Trump and everything (good) Republicans do. Over the last couple of years, these news sources have made a name for themselves for being highly untrustworthy, so why would I take anything they say to heart?
And most people, I believe, agree with me on that – as well they should. The media and the whole of the Left make baseless claims that this tax plan will serve to help the rich get richer and will increase middle-income Americans’ taxes when that’s not at all the case.
I’ve said before that this tax bill will help middle-income Americans a good deal and that businesses will be helped out a ton. Helping businesses this way will help to strengthen the economy, create more jobs and benefit just about everyone regardless of class. But the Left doesn’t want you to know that.
The Left wants you to believe this tax cut will be the end of the world, as Pelosi described it, and that only they are able to be fair when it comes to taxes even though it’s been their plans and bills that put the country in the mess it was and still somewhat is.
Not once did Obama’s GDP grow by 3% in a single quarter. Trump’s did multiple times in CONSECUTIVE quarters. This tax bill will only help the economy get stronger and will lift the tyrannical Obamacare mandate off people’s shoulders.
Do I think most people like the tax bill? Given the information we have, there’s little reason not to. Now, I won’t claim to speak for the whole country, unlike the Left, when I say that. But I do also think that most people no longer trust the media. And that distrust goes a long way for helping Make America Great Again.
While I won’t claim that most people do like the tax bill, I will logically assume that most people don’t believe the garbage the MSM spews about it and will draw their own conclusions about the tax bill without the influence of serial liars.
“Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on His law he meditates day and night.”
