Video: College students endorse Trump’s tax plan when told it’s Bernie’s tax plan

Published

President Donald J. Trump’s tax plan may have been immediately shunned by the left — but college students quickly endorsed it when they thought the plan was drafted by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I.-Vt.), the Brooklyn-born socialist, who challenged former first lady Hillary R. Clinton all the way to the convention.

A reporter with Campus Reform set out doing man on the street interviews at George Washington University to find out how students felt about Trump’s tax plan, both when they knew it was coming from him — and when they didn’t.

“It’s not the most efficient, nor beneficial to the general populous,” one student said of Trump’s tax plan.

Another student said it would be better for the upper class than anyone else.

To see how students would feel about the bill without their anti-Trump biases getting in the way, the reporter switched to telling students that the plan came from Senator Sanders. The difference in reactions was outstanding.

The reporter explained that one part of the plan is to increase child tax credits, and all of the students who responded agreed that this would be positive.

The second aspect of Trump’s tax plan that he claimed belonged to Sander’s plan was the elimination of the death tax, again every student they spoke to agreed with abandoning this tax.

When told that “Bernie” is planning to lower the small business tax to a maximum of 25 percent, the students were delighted.

“Any way we can help small businesses work and thrive is beneficial for the country,” a student said. 

Finally, the students were asked how they felt about the plan overall. Each student explained how great the plan was, with one noting how much better Sander’s plan is than Trump’s.

The problem is, Sanders does not even have a tax plan.

“What if I told you that’s Trump’s tax plan, not Bernie’s?” Campus Reform eventually asked.

The students all appeared to be shocked, with one even admitting that there could be a plan for Trump to give her ice cream — and she would still be skeptical of what was in it, simply because of her complete opposition to the president.

SHAME: Democrats Are Blocking Stimulus Legislation That Includes Second $1,200 TrumpBux Check

Published

on

Democrats in Congress are blocking a bipartisan $1.5 trillion stimulus package that includes a second round of $1,200 TrumpBux payments to Americans.

Leading House Democrats are saying the bill isn’t big enough of a giveaway, but they favor stimulus measures that would divert funds away from the pockets of everyday Americans to institutions. They want to bail out Democrat state and local governments, and are willing to block TrumpBux payments to Americans if they aren’t allowed to.

The House passed a $3.4 trillion stimulus package in May that was shot down by Senate Republicans. The latest $1.4 stimulus legislation has been presented as a compromise, after House Democrats in turn rejected a thin $500 billion stimulus package proposed by Republicans last week. That package did not include a second round of $1,200 payments, and Republicans are now willing to sign off on another TrumpBux payment in order to pass another round of stimulus.

The $1.5 trillion stimulus legislation emerged from the Problem Solvers Caucus, a group of 25 Republicans and 25 Democrats who emphasize bipartisanship and common ground. Aside from TrumpBux 2, it features $500 billion for cities and states, unemployment insurance of $600 a week, increased SNAP benefits and rental assistance.

Steny Hoyer and Nancy Pelosi are claiming the legislation doesn’t go far enough and that it “leaves too many needs unmet.”

Pelosi and House Democrats are insisting that Congress will remain in session until a second stimulus agreement is met, but in rejecting the Problem Solvers Caucus legislation they’re already shown they’re not open to a generous compromise.

Try asking everyday working Americans of all stripes and walks of life if they’re willing to wait or even go without a second $1,200 stimulus payment in order to provide a bigger bailout to states and cities that already engage in questionable budgetary practices to begin with. The Democrats are resolutely determined to avoid making people the priority in  a stimulus package, and will block stimulus legislation to do so.
