This morning Politico featured new polling data that shows that the majority of Americans believe that recently-passed tax reform is good for the economy.
“Impact of tax cuts on economy: Good for economy: 51% … Bad for economy: 37% … Unsure: 9%. Impact of tax reform on your family: Will help: 46% … Will hurt: 35% … Neither: 9%. … House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s image: Favorable: 32% … Unfavorable: 52%”
This comes on the heels of the IRS releasing new withholding guidance that will lead to 90% of workers experiencing an increase in their take home pay, as well as a series of announcement from over 200 companies that plan to give bonuses, wage increases, and 401(k) increases as a result of tax reform.
With the IMF raising its 2018 global growth forecast because of U.S. tax reform, Democrats continue to try to distract hard-working Americans from the expected success of tax reform by shutting down the government. The Hill recently penned a scathing critique of their tactics:
“When President Trump set out to deliver historic tax cuts for the American people, Democrats sat on their hands, rather than participating in the legislative process. Now they’ve come off the sidelines to actively sabotage the government established to serve the American people.”
