So sad: Republicans realize ‘we’ve lost the messaging battle’ on tax scam
Republicans try to sell their scam
Sad news for Republicans: Voters see through their tax law. Even sadder, the Republican ability to stay in denial about that is fading. In an internal Republican National Committee poll:
By a 2-to-1 margin — 61 percent to 30 percent — respondents said the law benefits “large corporations and rich Americans” over “middle class families,” according to the survey, which was completed on Sept. 2 by the GOP firm Public Opinion Strategies and obtained by Bloomberg News.
Independent voters saw the Republican law that way even more strongly than Democrats. So, while voters are much more narrowly split on whether the tax overhaul was a good thing, Republicans say that “we’ve lost the messaging battle.”
The RNC study says Americans worry the tax law will lead to cuts in Social Security and Medicare, concluding that “most voters believe that the GOP wants to cut back on these programs in order to provide tax breaks for corporations and the wealthy.” It attributes that finding to “a fairly disciplined Democrat attack against the recent tax cuts.”
That “fairly disciplined Democratic attack” was aided, of course, by reality. Because that’s what Republicans want to do, and they haven’t always done the best job of hiding it.
No more tax cuts for large corporations and rich Americans. Can you give $1 to each Daily Kos-endorsed candidate for House and Senate?
