The GOP tax cuts have kicked in, but former Obama adviser Dan Pfeiffer spotted an angle the Dems should be taking for the midterm elections later this year:
Morgan Stanley analysts expect companies to pass only 13% of Trump tax cut savings directly to workers, vs 43% to share buybacks.
For manufacturers, it's 9% / 47%. pic.twitter.com/J3RCJjPJhr

This is what Democrats should be talking about every day until Election Day. https://t.co/S2IHPeLdF5

Joan Walsh agrees with Pfeiffer:
Every damn day, Democrats. https://t.co/Te1JiOSjqQ

We’ve gone from “Armageddon” and “end of the world” to “you’re keeping more of your own money and getting bonuses but not as much as you should be” in a relatively short time:
"Pay no attention to the increase in your paycheck, because someone else might be getting more." — Classic Dem messaging. https://t.co/JPhAjJbPK3

Yes Dems, please take Pfeiffer’s advice.
Businesses are making more money, passing on some to employees…and Democrats are still mad.
They'd rather…Everyone made less money? https://t.co/BdVQdgzJEM

It would help Dems if reality matched their narrative, yes.
So? People are getting tax cuts AND pay raises, but you're not satisfied? https://t.co/CkRShZBvrQ

Sure hope so, because it will guarantee they ‘ll get clobbered. https://t.co/WTpCfdKgzI

Class warefare: Have no fear, dems already (as you know and participate in) do that. SOP! https://t.co/qTOXEWDTDG

As if there was any doubt the Dems would go the “class warfare” route no matter what happened with the tax bill.
