The GOP tax plan has Bernie Sanders doing his thing again:
FACT: Under the Republican plan, a single mother making minimum wage with two kids would get only a $75 tax credit. Meanwhile, a family making $500k with two kids would get a $4,000 tax credit. #TaxDebate

That kind of tweet plays great with Bernie’s base, but when thought through it’s one of the dumbest hot takes in history.
There's so much wrong with this tweet https://t.co/1doK4fb8nq

There really is.
That's because that single mom is going to pay basically nothing in taxes, you blithering idiot. https://t.co/3pC13hj70m

A single mother making minimum wage with two kids pays no taxes. https://t.co/DzDFyGcZNd

Actually Bernie, "a single mother making minimum wage with two kids" would pay virtually nothing while the family making $500k would be paying around $125k into the system. Stop deceiving people. https://t.co/fvzmhHxU7R

FACT: Sanders doesn't want to tell you a single mother making minimum wage likely pays no taxes anyway.

So Bernie, I know math is hard but I'm gonna bet the single mom on min wage basically pays ZERO taxes! How fucking stupid are you? https://t.co/lhHtoPbTSp

NEWSFLASH: People that actually pay taxes will benefit from tax break more than those that don't. https://t.co/8UAbtQpOZI

FACT: A single mother making minimum wage with two kids doesn't pay any income tax, and still wouldn't under the Republican plan; but would be entitled to less of everyone else's money. #TaxReform https://t.co/UDZBwjie1R

Crazy Socialist Democrat has no idea what the difference is between giving someone a tax credit and taxing someone less. 2020 is gonna be a cakewalk for the GOP if they don't self implode… which is very likely tbh https://t.co/3jCi8N954l
