Republicans sell tax bill with help from billionaires
By Joni Ashbrook
If you listened closely enough you could hear the cheers from millionaires and billionaires after Republicans passed their historically unpopular “middle class” tax cuts. Some of those cheers were coming from the people who crafted the law like President Donald Trump, his billionaire cabinet members, as well as some Republican members of Congress. For example, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) added a last-minute oil and gas amendment that would enrich his GOP pals like Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.
