Sen. Elizabeth Warren forgot momentarily that she hated the GOP tax bill with every fiber of her being during an interview, but quickly remembered that she’s a hard line Democrat and that the GOP tax bill is bad despite the benefits to her constituents she had just praised.
According to the Washington Examiner, Fox News host Bret Baier was speaking with Warren on his show Wednesday and asked her if she would repeal the tax law the GOP had passed if she and her Democrat colleagues took over after the midterms.
“What we have to do is change it,” Warren said. “You got to take out the parts that are giant giveaways to big corporations that right now the Republicans plan for hard-working families to eventually pay for it.”
Baier then brought up the fact that Eversource, a power company in Warren’s state of Massachusetts, is reducing rates to their customers, thanks to the tax cuts to corporations.
“And good for them. I’m delighted to hear that,” said Warren.
Warren, however, quickly snapped back into her role as an anti-Republican die-hard.
“It is $1.5 trillion the Republicans gave away to billionaires and to giant corporations,” Warren said. “And they expect hardworking families to just pick up the ticket on that. I want those breaks to go directly to hardworking families. Not to a bunch of rich folks.”
How Warren squares that comment with the news that a power company is lightening the burden on working-class families thanks to tax cuts allowing them to do so is anyone’s guess. You would think the easing of payments toward the people she is claiming to look after would spark some sort of affinity for the tax cuts.
But sadly, that’s not how the hard left works. Tax and spend is the name of the game, not cut and save. The anti-corporate nonsense that poisons the left ends up costing the people they claim to protect more money than they should have to pay. Even in the face of positive outcomes, the ideology must be followed to the letter.
