Senate Dems Vow Americans Will Hold GOP Accountable for … Well, Cutting Their Taxes

In a possible sign of how long the Democratic Party has been out of touch with middle-class Americans, several senators took to Twitter early Wednesday to promise that voters would hold the GOP accountable in 2018 for, well, cutting their taxes.

Indeed, even the left-leaning Tax Policy Center found that 80.4 percent of Americans will received a tax cut in 2018, including 91.3 percent of taxpayers in the middle fifth of American earners.

That didn’t stop Democrats from an all-out verbal assault on the bill, though, which every one of them voted against.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) led the way, saying the entire GOP will “rue the day” they voted for the bill.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), a possible 2020 presidential candidate, promised GOP senators “will be held accountable.”

Hillary Clinton’s VP pick, Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA), said we need to “reform” Congress in next year’s midterms.

Possible 2020 candidates Sens. Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) also weighed in:
