The minority leader in the U. S. Senate, Chuck Schumer (D NY) was quick to come out and oppose the Republican tax reduction plan. He made the usual arguments that the plan only reduces taxes on the rich, and doesn’t help the middle class despite that under the plan some of the richest Americans will actually pay more taxes.
However, he did come out with rather bizarre argument even for him. He said the plan would greatly increase the deficit. Republicans and conservative pundits were quick to point out that this is a man who supported President Obama’s every move that resulted in the doubling of the deficit in just his two terms in office. Schumer’s Democrats have always supported high taxes.
