Con­ser­va­tive: Dems Are So Wrong On GOP Tax Bill

New York Post - - POSTOPINION -

Ed Mor­ris­sey at The Week is no fan of the Repub­li­can tax bill, but he says the “hys­ter­i­cal Demo­cratic re­sponse” is worse than the GOP dis­unity that created the leg­is­la­tion. Lib­er­als have “just matched Repub­li­can in­com­pe­tence with their own ridicu­lous hy­per­bole and panic.” Case in point: House Dem Leader Nancy Pelosi la­bel­ing it “Ar­maged­don” and “the worst bill” in con­gres­sional his­tory. As op­posed to, say, the Fugi­tive Slave Act of 1850 or the Sedi­tion Act of 1918? The real prob­lem with the bill, says Mor­ris­sey, “is the op­po­site of Pelosi’s claims . . . it doesn’t go far enough.” It’s just “a mild ad­just­ment to the sta­tus quo of in­di­vid­ual taxes, not a ground­break­ing ef­fort to put Amer­ica on the path of sim­plic­ity and fair­ness.”
