On Friday, President Trump decided to go ahead and sign the GOP tax cut bill into law.
He had been planning on waiting until the New Year but after hearing various sources in the media attack him for not fulfilling his promise to get tax reform done in 2017, he decided to simply sign the bill before leaving Washington, D.C. for the Christmas holiday.
President Trump on Friday signed his first major legislative triumph – a $1.5 trillion tax overhaul expected to trigger tax cuts for most Americans next year – as well as a temporary spending bill that keeps the government running through mid-January.
Trump signed the bills before heading to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla., for the winter holidays.
As he did, the president told reporters he was initially going to wait until after the new year but changed his mind because he wanted to prove he was keeping his promise to America to get a tax bill signed before Dec. 25.
“I didn’t want you folks to say I wasn’t keeping my promise” to sign the bill by Christmas, he said. “Every one of the networks was saying ‘Will he keep his promise? Will he sign it by Christmas?'”
So Trump said he told his staff: “Get it ready, we have to sign it now.”
The Democrats and their partners in the media have been fear mongering about the GOP tax cuts for weeks.
They’ve sowed such fear into the hearts of their base that social media was aflame with leftwing horror stories about the death and destruction that was coming because of the Republican thievery. (By the way, I’ve yet to hear a liberal explain how letting people keep more of their own money is “thievery” or “stealing.”)
Oh, but wait, there’s more. So. Much. More.
The new tax reform law has our international competitors shaking in their boots! In fact, down in Australia the national Treasurer is warning Australia’s politicians that if they don’t do something soon they could begin losing money, jobs, and business to the USA because of the GOP tax reforms.
This is literally, the exact opposite of what the liberals were saying would happen if the GOP tax bill became law.
Many others on the interwebz noticed the Australian announcement with interest.
On the heels of all of this winning, the President explained that the media would never give him the positive credit that he so richly deserves, so he and his staff would simply put the data together for them.
The President also hopes that the Democrats will begin working with the GOP and his administration in an effort to make America everything it can be again.
The Democrats say they plan on using the GOP tax reform in their efforts to defeat the GOP in 2018, can they really be that insane?
Do they really believe that attacking what will most certainly be a very popular policy, is the way to win an electoral victory?
If so, the GOP may be poised to win a major upset in 2018.
