The Washington Free Beacon put together the most epic montage of all the political pundits who said Trump's tax plan couldn't possibly benefit Americans after a multitude of companies announced large investments in America, minimum wage increases, and bonuses.
Talking points from progressives excoriating the Republican bill made the airwaves on Democratic-leaning television networks and were compiled by the Free Beacon with countering evidence that suggests the bill was actually beneficial for many Americans.
It's safe to say the naysayers were absolutely wrong. On Wednesday, Apple announced a $350 billion dollar investment in the U.S. economy resulting in 20,000 new jobs after the company was forced to hoard its cash overseas to avoid paying high taxes on a whopping $256 billion.
American sentiment is also high. According to a survey conducted by SurveyMonkey for the New York Times, "Forty-six percent of Americans strongly or somewhat approved of the law in early January, up from 37 percent when the bill was nearing passage in December."
"At the same time, falling unemployment, accelerating economic growth and a surging stock market have made Americans increasingly positive about both their own finances and the overall economy."
Just in 20 days, Americans have seen more than 2 million workers getting raises and bonuses. https://t.co/okEyUoGmQl— Paul Ryan (@Paul Ryan) 1515945935
