Montana governor Steve Bullock is the latest Democrat to demonstrate just how out of touch he is with the lives and values of hardworking, everyday Americans. Taking a page from the playbook of Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, Bullock has scoffed at the higher take-home pay, bonuses, benefit improvements and lower utility bills resulting from the GOP tax cuts. Though instead of saying “crumbs,” like his partisan counterparts in San Francisco and New York City do, Bullock calls them “table scraps.”
Thanks to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act — the long-overdue federal tax code overhaul that passed Congress without a single Democrat vote — 90 percent of wage earners have higher take-home pay. Companies of all sizes have already given bonuses, raises, and higher 401(k) matches to millions of workers. And at least 102 utilities across the country are lowering rates for customers in response to the GOP tax cuts.
