Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

GOP Senator Calls Schumer Braindead for Calling Tax Plan ‘Wealth-Fare’

Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) had some strong words for Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Thursday over his critical comments in regards to the Republicans’ newly introduced tax reform plan.

“Lying is a growth industry around here,” Kennedy said in response to Schumer calling the plan “wealth-fare,” adding that the New York senator must be “brain-dead” if he’s going to oppose the bill.

“Our bill will do more for middle-class Americans, working families, ordinary people, whatever you want to call it, than anything this town has done in 50 years,” he said.

“I have got to set the record straight on that,” Kennedy added. “Chuck is just not telling you the truth about this bill.”

Kennedy then went on to say that his party’s new tax reform bill, which President Trump introduced Wednesday, is a tax cut for “people who get up every day and go to work and obey the law and pay their taxes that need a little help.”

When pushed on why Republicans are having a hard time to get Democrats to support the effort, Kennedy said: “I think we can, and we are. You’ve got to refute nonsense as spoken by my friend, Chuck Schumer.”

“It’s nonsense on a stick. He knows that,” Kennedy said, adding that it’s “white-hot hatred for Donald Trump” of Schumer’s base that is making it impossible for the Democratic senator to back any legislative plan attached to the Republicans or the president.

However, it wasn’t more than a few weeks ago that Schumer struck a deal with President Trump that extended the debt ceiling and provided hurricane relief to Texas.

After the new administrations tax plan was revealed, Schumer blasted the effort, saying “It seems that President Trump and Republicans have designed their plan to be cheered in the country clubs and the corporate boardrooms.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) also had a critical response to the proposal, calling it a “framework thatgives away the store to the wealthiest, while sticking the middle class with the bill.”
