CNN on TCJA: “The facts are, most Americans got a tax cut.”

President Biden will lie about the Trump tax cuts during the presidential debate tonight. CNN’s Jake Tapper has called out Biden for this previously, and he should do so again.

“The facts are, most Americans got a tax cut,” said Tapper in a 2019 fact check of Biden.

Biden had asserted that the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act “benefited virtually no one but the super wealthy.”

CNN fact checked Biden complete with a “VERDICT: FALSE” tag and Tapper said:

“In reality, it is likely that many of the people in Biden’s audience that day at the Teamsters banquet hall in Pittsburgh benefited from that tax cut. But no matter what you think, the facts are: most Americans got a tax cut.”

Biden has a tough time admitting the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act cut taxes for all income levels.

Even left-leaning media outlets and fact checkers have repeatedly called out the Biden lie.

Regarding the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act:

New York Times: “Most people got a tax cut.”

Washington Post: “Most Americans received a tax cut.”

FactCheck.org: “Most people got some kind of tax cut.”

FactCheck.org also stated: “The vast majority (82 percent) of middle-income earners — those with income between about $49,000 and $86,000 — received a tax cut that averaged about $1,050.

H&R Block: “The vast majority of people did get a tax cut.”

CNN’s Jake Tapper: The facts are, most Americans got a tax cut.” 

Biden has a long history of dishonesty on taxes. Biden lied to the American people when he ran for Vice President in 2008 when he repeatedly said he would not support any form of any tax that imposed even “one single penny” of tax increase on anyone making less than $250,000. Together with President Obama, Biden shattered that promise upon taking office.

The Biden and Harris vow to “eliminate” and “repeal” and “end” and “reverse” TCJA would impose a significant tax increase on the American people. View the video compilation of their tax hike vows here and below:
