(National Sentinel) Disgraceful: Liberal MSNBC host Rachel Maddow told her viewers Wednesday night that the just-passed GOP tax reform bill will give major corporations an “embarrassing amount of money,” despite the fact that at least 80 percent of all Americans will see their taxes decrease beginning next year.
After the measure passed a number of major corporations including Wells Fargo, Comcast and AT&T gave hundreds of millions in bonuses to their employees. But Maddow framed that giveaway as proof that the tax reform bill was only beneficial for companies.
“You know, when companies start volunteering that they have come up with worthy things to do with all the money that was just dumped on them, that’s how you know, oh my god, a huge amount of money was just dumped on them,” Maddow said.
“So the effects of the tax bill started to reverberate today as the wealthiest people and most powerful corporate corporations in this country started almost literally scrambling to figure out how they’re going to handle the money the Republican tax bill just gave them,” she claimed.
“So when your families’ taxes go up because of this bill, you can take comfort in knowing that’s what you’re paying for, you’re giving telecom companies and biggest banks in the country a really embarrassing amount of money to have to explain away,” she said.
According to an analysis by the Tax Policy Center, a left-leaning think tank, more than 80 percent of Americans’ tax rates will fall thanks to the tax reform legislation.
Less than 5 percent of taxpayers are expected to see a tax increase of more than $10 next year, The Daily Caller noted.
The establishment media has been reporting that corporations and wealthy Americans are getting tax cuts, while those cuts are paid for by middle class earners. But as The Wall Street Journal’s Richard Rubin tweeted on Tuesday, 80 percent of households will get cuts in 2018, yet only 17 percent in a WSJ poll believe they’re getting tax cuts.
