CNN's John King: GOP Tax Bill Puts Some 'Damn Good Money' In The Hands Of Working Families

CNN has been stepping on rakes in their coverage of the Trump White House, but even a broken clock is right twice a day. Host John King obviously touched upon the gamble with this tax reform package by congressional Republicans that cuts taxes by $1.5 trillion. The dividends are that Americans have more money and jobs growth continues to be robust. Democrats were not having any of it, claiming that this is the worst bill in the history of mankind, and that somehow giving people more money through these cuts is stealing, or something. Well, it’s not your money, but that’s a different debate.

Yet, King asked if Democrats, especially those from states that Trump won in 2016, were taking a risk by opposing this historic bill.

“If you’re a working class family, a lot of people say, ‘oh, it’s only $200, oh, it’s only $300;’ if you’re a working class family living paycheck-to-paycheck—$200-300 is damn good money and you are grateful for it,” King said.

Even $100 is good break for these families. To suggest otherwise is liberal bubble logic. We’ll see what will come of this bill, but if taxes are cut for 80 percent of American families, this bill’s approval is bound to rise. If that occurs, the 2018 environment could change quickly.

UPDATE: Yeah, this tax bill is totally screwing over the American worker (sarc.) Nice work, Democrats.
