NYT: “To a large degree, the gap between perception and reality on the tax cuts appears to flow from a sustained and misleading effort by liberal opponents of the law to brand it as a broad middle-class tax increase.”

Today the New York Times finally noted the following regarding the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act:

“Most people got a tax cut.”

NYT excerpt:Experts are divided on whether the tax law was a good idea. But there is little disagreement on this core point: Most people got a tax cut.”

There was a “sustained – and misleading – effort” by the Left to lie about the tax cuts.

NYT excerpt: To a large degree, the gap between perception and reality on the tax cuts appears to flow from a sustained — and misleading — effort by liberal opponents of the law to brand it as a broad middle-class tax increase.”

Even a left-wing tax group “found that every income group in every state would pay less on average under the law in 2019.”

NYT excerpt: The Joint Committee on Taxation — Congress’s nonpartisan team of tax analysts — found that every income group would see a tax cut on average. So did the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy, a left-leaning think tank that was sharply critical of the law. In fact, that group went even further: In a December 2017 analysis, it found that every income group in every state would pay less on average under the law in 2019.”

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

NYT excerpt: “The vast majority of people did get a tax cut,” said Nathan Rigney, an analyst at H&R Block’s Tax Institute. That’s been clear all along, he added, “just now we have real data to back that up.”

“This is a devastating smackdown of the last two years of lies about the nature of the Republican tax cut,” said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform. “The false narrative driven by Democratic presidential candidates and some partisan media will now not survive contact with reality.”
