If you think that former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid hated Republicans with a vengeance, then consider the fact that current Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s hatred for everything Trump far surpasses that of Reid.
Schumer’s hatred for Trump led him to make a major blunder and he did so publicly, and it’s one that everyone should remember when he comes up for re-election.
Schumer immediately took television to condemn the tax bill Congress had passed. He claimed no company would use the cuts to help employees and he named AT&T as an example.
Guess, what, AT&T was one of the first companies to announce giving a $1,000 bonus to over 200,000 employees, making a liar out of Schumer.
(Constitution.com) – Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer never met a GOP program he liked. I do believe if President Trump found a way to end all war, Schumer would complain that not enough people were dying and the earth was getting too crowded. Most of the time he flies off the handle to criticize a bill, speech or policy before it’s been written.
He’s been a big opponent the tax plan going with the standard liberal argument that every tax cut ever done favors the rich and doesn’t help the economy. Of course, he is ignoring the tax cut pushed by John F. Kennedy and the one by Ronald Reagan, each brought a period of prosperity to the economy.
As his usual habit, immediately after the House voted a second time to approve the tax bill, he didn’t wait to start criticizing. And that was his big mistake. Schumer found a TV camera and started bloviating, and that when he soiled his shoes with doggy turds. He started to attack the bill and denied that corporations would use the tax saving to increase salaries or hire more people. And as an example, he singled out AT&T…
Schumer also boasted that the tax reform bill would be an economic disaster and hurt the economy, but the moment it was announced that it was passed by Congress, many facets of American and global economy responded by improving. More companies have joined AT&T in passing on their benefit of a lower tax rate to their employees, again proving Schumer to be a liar.
