GOP Committing Political Suicide As Two-Thirds Of America Think Tax Proposal Is A Scam

Donald Trump and Republicans marched forward with their tax plan on Wednesday, fresh off a stunning defeat in the Alabama senate race, but a new poll shows that most of the country believes the proposal is a massive scam.

According to a new Harvard CAPS-Harris poll, nearly two-thirds of the country – 64 percent – oppose the GOP bill, which has been exposed as a massive handout to the wealthiest Americans at the expense of middle and low-income folks.

The numbers are worse when independents weigh in on the plan, as 70 percent of that voting bloc opposes the proposal. Unsurprisingly, 89 percent of Democratic respondents say the legislation is garbage.

A majority are also against the central staple of the plan: lowering the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent, which is the proposed rate under the new plan.

The poll comes as GOP lawmakers have reportedly come to an agreement on a final plan they believe would have the votes to pass through Congress.

As The Hill reported

on Wednesday, “Senate and House Republicans have struck an ‘agreement in principle’ on a sweeping tax-cut bill that if passed would be the first major piece of legislation signed by President Trump.”

The report notes that Republican leaders believe they could pass the proposal as early as next week, just before the Christmas holiday.

If the GOP thinks that they will improve their political fortunes by passing a tax scam that the vast majority of the country doesn’t want and has been exposed as a massive handout to the wealthiest individuals and corporations, they will be in for a rude awakening come Nov. 2018.
