GOP Slams Dems for Tax Reform Hypocrisy

Turns out many of the high-profile opponents of GOP tax reform efforts were for the proposal before they were against it.

A new video from Republicans flashes back to a period when Democrats supported the tax reform initiatives that Republicans are now pushing in their efforts. However, now that the GOP has proposed them, Democrats are nowhere to be found.

The video cites Sens. Mazie Hirono (D-HI), Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in support of the child tax cut credit.

And then the video moves into playing clips of Sens. Claire McCaskill (D-MI), Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) supporting a reduction in the American corporate tax rate.

“I’m game to [lower the corporate tax rate], because I think it’s really important for American competitiveness,” Schumer said at a committee hearing in 2015.

And Feinstein thought as late as this year that it was “fair” to examine the high corporate tax rate, while McCaskill pointed out in 2015 that it was “among the highest in the industrialized world.”

The GOP video ends with a call for Democrats to support their previous position and reduce the American tax burden.
