CNBC torches Brindisi-Rose tax bill
It’s the height of hypocrisy. Anthony Brindisi and Max Rose used to whine and whine that Republicans “passed a one sided tax bill to benefit their wealthy donors” and that it was “never meant to help the middle class.”
But then they got to Washington and … drum roll please … immediately introduced tax cuts exclusively for mega-rich.
CNBC torched Anthony Brindisi and Max Rose’s tax bill to eliminate the cap on the state and local tax deduction yesterday, saying it“would lower taxes on the highest earners and create little or zero benefits for the middle class.”
Watch the absolutely 🔥 segment here.
And they’re right. According to nonpartisan studies, bills like the Brindisi-Rose bill would give 96% of their tax cuts to the highest earning households. Those in the top 1% would get a fat $31,000 tax cut.
Just for the LOLs, here’s Brindisi and Rose going into total melt down over tax cuts for wealthy folks. Can’t wait to their reaction to the studies on their own bill! 🤯
Today, the war on working, middle-class individuals, children & seniors is in full force and @claudiatenney is leading the charge. At a time when the country is calling for bipartisanship, the hard right just passed a one sided tax bill to mostly benefit their wealthy donors.

The #taxscam was never meant to help the middle class It was all about giving tax cuts to donors and even sitting elected officials. This fight isn’t over. Not by a long shot.
