Former U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer took a look at some charts posted by NPR on the GOP tax cuts and came to this shocking conclusion:
With your 2018 tax cut, if you're a janitor making $30K, you get $180 – almost enough for one Big Mac a week. If you own the building, you can fly to Paris business class each week & have dinner at Maxim's. https://t.co/VDTRvO9R00

Shocking! That’s not how communism is supposed to work at all.
So what Boxer is saying is …
Let’s cut more, then.

Shorter: People who earn more money, get to keep more of their income. Your tweet is asinine.
PS:. When was the last time you advocated for tax cuts for anyone, janitor or otherwise?

Wait…how much in Federal taxes is a janitor making $30K paying in the first place? https://t.co/84orVHJsWX

People who make more will save more. Pretty standard math. Pretty sure the guy who owns the building also pays a multiple of the janitor’s salary in taxes. Is she for real? https://t.co/yjUst1VrCK

If they own the building, they are providing jobs to custodians, managers, all sorts of maintenance and repair workers, and accountants.

Do you realize how out-of-touch and elitist you and your sycophants sound? You are on the losing end of this and immigration reform.

My take-home pay went up 5.4% because of the tax cut.

I’m a teacher making $40k a year in Indiana. The tax cuts give me an extra $80/month, $960/year. That’s going to pay my monthly water bill, sewage, trash pick-up, and my child sponsorship in Bolivia.
Are you asking for that money back?

Yes, she is.

I cannot believe this is the line of argument they’re going with…I’m taking my tax cut and running w it, honey. https://t.co/cCkmoQEmPE

You people are seriously out of touch with Americans and how we live.

I love hearing Democrats try to explain why me getting to keep more of my money is a bad thing. #LiberalLogic

Democrats should definitely run with the “crumbs” line right through the 2018 midterms. “We’re taking back those crumbs, and you’ll like it.”
