Democrats trash talk the tax bill, but don’t want it repealed

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., was resolutely opposed to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. From his perch on the Senate Budget Committee, he weighed it down with rules challenges. At rallies across the Rust Belt, he warned it would speed up America’s transformation into an oligarchy.

However the Mercury News reports that on CNN on Sunday, however, the feckless Sanders said that parts of the bill were worth saving.

“According to the Tax Policy Center, next year, 91 percent of middle-income Americans will receive a tax cut,” CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Sanders. “Isn’t that a good thing?”

“Yes, it is a very good thing,” Sanders said. “And that’s why we should have made the tax breaks for the middle class permanent. But what the Republicans did is made the tax breaks for corporations permanent, the tax breaks for the middle class temporary.”

What a two-faced loser.
