(National Sentinel)Â Disgraceful: LiberalÂ MSNBC host Rachel Maddow told her viewers Wednesday night that the just-passed GOP tax reform bill will giveÂ major corporations an â€œembarrassing amount of money,â€ despite the fact that at least 80 percent of all Americans will see their taxes decrease beginning next year.
After the measure passed a number of major corporations including Wells Fargo, Comcast and AT&T gave hundreds of millions in bonuses to their employees. But Maddow framed that giveaway as proof that the tax reform bill was only beneficial for companies.
â€œYou know, when companies start volunteering that they have come up with worthy things to do with all the money that was just dumped on them, thatâ€™s how you know, oh my god, a huge amount of money was just dumped on them,â€ Maddow said.
â€œSo theÂ effects of the tax bill startedÂ to reverberate today as the wealthiestÂ people and most powerful corporateÂ corporations in this countryÂ started almost literally scrambling toÂ figure out how theyâ€™re going to handle theÂ money the Republican tax bill just gave them,â€ she claimed.Â
â€œSo when your familiesâ€™ taxes go up because of this bill, you can takeÂ comfort in knowing thatâ€™s what youâ€™reÂ paying for, youâ€™re giving telecom companiesÂ and biggest banks in the countryÂ a really embarrassing amountÂ of money to have to explain away,” she said.
AccordingÂ to anÂ analysisÂ by theÂ Tax Policy Center, a left-leaning think tank, more than 80 percent of Americans’ tax rates will fall thanks to the tax reform legislation.
Less than 5 percent of taxpayers are expected to see a tax increase of more than $10 next year,Â The Daily Caller noted.
The establishment media has been reporting that corporations and wealthy Americans are getting tax cuts, while those cuts are paid for by middle class earners. ButÂ as The Wall Street Journalâ€™s Richard Rubin tweeted on Tuesday, 80 percent of households will get cuts in 2018, yet only 17 percent in a WSJ poll believe theyâ€™re getting tax cuts.
