American Thinker: The roaring success of President Trump’s tax cuts have made every Democrat squirm uncomfortably, and none quite like self-proclaimed consumer advocate Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.
After voting against the historic bill last month, the far-left senator was left in the dust on the losing side of a new reform. As if that weren’t bad enough, she has since repeatedly been forced to say it really was a good thing.
The latest came out in an interview on Fox News with Bret Baier, who asked her what she thought of the rate cuts extended to ice-bound Massachusetts energy customers by a local firm passing on the tax cuts to consumers. According to the Washington Examiner:
“And good for them. I’m delighted to hear that,” Warren, who was being interviewed alongside Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., said.
After that she ranted about the giant corporations getting tax breaks and how she wanted to stop it, utterly oblivious to the fact that it was the same giant corporations extending the tax cuts to their customers, who were benefiting.
Let’s get that straight one more time: Warren actually said she wanted to get rid of the tax cuts, unable to grasp that the tax cuts are the exact instrument that enabled the energy company to cut rates for consumers. Warren was supposed to be smart enough to be a Harvard professor?
It’s got to be painful to contort herself this way. read more
