This is the week that the Trump administration became truly historic.
Democrats are fooling themselves if they believe that the American people are going to be unhappy with getting to keep more of their own money. Unlike Obamacare, people will probably be pleasantly surprised by what they find waiting for them.
There is one negative to the way the GOP has handled tax reform:
Taking the ever-popular dessert-first approach to fiscal policy, Republicans have delivered a very large tax cut. It has some good features: It lowers the U.S. statutory corporate-tax rate, formerly one of the highest in the world, to 21 percent, more in keeping with other advanced economies; it expands the standard deduction; it raises the threshold for the estate tax, which will be of great interest to those of you with parents worth more than the previous limit of $11.2 million; it caps, though it fails to eliminate, the deduction for state and local taxes, which is both good policy and SALT in the wounds of Democrats from high-tax states such as California and New Jersey.
It will also add about $1.5 trillion to the national debt.
Even leftwing Democrats understand that the tax bill is likely to grow more popular as time goes on, not less.
So what happens if the American people happily embrace the opportunity to keep more of their own money? The Democrats are going into attack mode and they could be writing the script for their own failure by attacking what will be a very popular tax cut.
