(BISMARCK, ND) – Despite what Kevin Cramer has been saying for the past year, North Dakotans know that the corporate giveaway masquerading as a tax cut for the middle class will not help out the average working family in the long run. But now one of their own has let slip the truth about the tax scam, and it doesn’t look great for Cramer’s Cronies.
Republican Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, in an interview with the economist, actually told the truth about the deficit-and-debt exploding bill:
“There is still a lot of thinking on the right that if big corporations are happy, they’re going to take the money they’re saving and reinvest it in American workers,” [Rubio] says. “In factthey bought back shares, a few gave out bonuses; there’s no evidence whatsoever that the money’s been massively poured back into the American worker.”
Now that his colleagues in the GOP are finally acknowledging the truth about their marquee accomplishment, will Cramer change his tune?
Based on his Cramer-before-North Dakota track record, workers likely shouldn’t hold their breath.
