When Democrats and many in the media are always telling people a tax plan benefits only “the rich” or when Democrats flat-out lie and say middle-class people will see a tax increase, people will tend to believe it. If you repeat something over and over, chances are, a lot of people will think it’s true.
The GOP tax cut plan certainly has flaws. And yes, people with higher income will get a more significant percentage of the benefits. But that is only natural as they pay most of the income taxes.
CBS This Morning asked three families in North Carolina, Rhode Island and California to send in their tax returns from last year. They had a CPA go over the returns and calculate what happens when using the new rates. Check it out:

Not only will all three families receive tax cuts, but the media and Democrats convinced two of the families their taxes would go up.
Don’t think for a second this will stop the misinformation campaign. The media will surely find a family that fits into a specific situation and see their taxes going up. You can bet that reporting will come with announcement featuring trumpets and fireworks.
Like McConnell said, if the GOP cannot sell this to the public, they don’t deserve to be in the majority.
