GOP Tax Cuts Are Turning Out To Be A Disaster … For Democrats
Not long ago, Democrats expected that the GOP tax cuts would be a political disaster for Republicans, just like ObamaCare was for Democrats in 2010. How’s that prediction working out?
Writing in the Atlantic in December, longtime political reporter Ron Brownstein argued that “President Trump and congressional Republicans have just taken the same leap of faith that Democrats did when they passed the Affordable Care Act.”
He went on to note that after Democrats passed ObamaCare in early 2010 — despite strong public opposition — the backlash from voters “helped propel Republicans to the biggest midterm gain in the House for either party since 1938 and gave them a majority in the chamber they still haven’t relinquished.”
