Mitch McConnell’s Absurd New Big Lie: Republicans Are Killing Obamacare To Cut Middle Class Taxes

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) made the absurd claim that Republicans are killing Obamacare so that they can cut more taxes for the middle-class. McConnell is a lie.


McConnell said, “This plan does a lot of things, including providing relief to businesses so they can create more jobs in America — and then keep them here. The nation’s leading small business advocacy organization endorsed this legislation, saying that it, ‘will provide much needed tax relief to enable small businesses to grow and create jobs.’ There’s another important provision of the Finance Committee’s tax-reform proposal too. It will deliver relief to low- and moderate-income families by repealing Obamacare’s individual mandate tax. In other words: we can deliver even more relief to the middle class by repealing an unpopular tax from an unworkable law. It just makes sense.”

The Senate Majority Leader is lying. Republicans admitted on Wednesday that they were repealing the individual mandate and taking away health care for 13 million people because it would give them a bigger pool of money to cut corporate taxes with. No mentioned an additional middle-class tax cut because Republicans are scrounging for every penny that they can cut to pay for tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations that are going to blow a $1.5 trillion hole in the deficit.

There is lying, and then there is fundamental shameless dishonesty about a policy, it’s intentions, and goals.

Republicans know that their tax plan is unpopular, so they have invented a fairy tale middle-class tax cut.

No one is buying what Republicans are selling on tax cuts. Trying to wrap tax cuts for the rich in a false promise of middle-class tax cuts the losing strategy of a desperate party that is acting they will be out of power soon.
