The Washington Post’s “Fact Check” blog gave Joe Biden 4 Pincochios for lying about the GOP tax cuts:

Biden said at his speech in Pittsburgh earlier in the week:
“There’s a $2 trillion tax cut last year. Did you feel it? Did you get anything from it? Of course not. Of course not. All of it went to folks at the top and corporations.”
That, of course, is not true. From the Post:
This is a good example of how precise words and context matter in a fact check. We’ve previously given Democrats and Republicans Two Pinocchios for failing to make clear whether they are talking about the long-term or short-term tax-cut estimates for the law. But Biden, with his loose language, ends up in the Four-Pinocchio territory. He asserts that no Americans but those at the top received any tax cut in 2018, which is clearly false.
Most Americans received a tax cut. They may not have noticed it, but that’s no excuse for saying they never got one.
We expect Biden will keep lying about this one, however:
"Here we go again. Democrats have long attacked President Trump’s tax cut in misleading ways"
Joe Biden is "simply wrong," says WaPo
Americans got an average tax cut of $1,200, whether Joe likes it or nothttps://t.co/hE5TdbK4eN
