If you’re wondering why Democrats refused to clap or stand for anything at the state of the union address, here’s something that puts it all in perspective. They don’t know what to do. They’re in a panic over all the good things that are happening on Trump’s watch.
The Hill reports:
Democrats panic over avalanche of good economic news
Democrats sound plain silly as they continue to attack the GOP tax cuts.
Former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) said at a recent town hall that $1,000 bonuses “wouldn’t go very far,” and they were taxable, so it wouldn’t really be $1,000 after all. Amazingly, she also said she hadn’t heard of any bonuses bigger than $1,000.
Is she really that out of touch? As Fox Business host Charles Payne noted in a tweet, Wasserman Schultz represents a district where the median household income is $50,000. Does she think her constituents wouldn’t welcome a $1,000 windfall?
Moreover, she apparently missed the announcements that Waste Management will pay $2,000 bonuses to 34,000 employees. She also failed to notice similar payments recently made by Fiat Chrysler and Apple.
Here’s the bad news for Democrats: The good news from the tax bill is going to be bigger and more powerful in the months ahead, leading right up to the fall elections. The most important number contained in the fourth-quarter GDP report was a 6.8-percent rise in business nonresidential investment.
Democrats are crazy if they think no one sees this.
