Shot/Chaser: Cramer’s Tax Bill Defense is a Whopper

Shocker: Cramer’s “Get the Facts” Website is Full of Bogus

(BISMARCK, ND) — Kevin Cramer can’t defend his reckless vote on the Washington Republican tax bill without stretching the truth. Case in point – his dismissive and outright fabrications about the cost of the bill:

SHOT: Kevin Cramer said that Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s concerns about the deficits were “pure speculation” and doesn’t take into account economic growth.

CHASER(S): Even after accounting for economic growth, the Joint Committee on Taxation estimated the tax bill will cost more than $1 trillion over 10 years. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office also reported that largely due to the tax bill, budget deficits are rapidly increasing and will surpass $1 trillion two years sooner than previously anticipated – even while considering economic growth projections.

It looks like you can’t even trust Kevin Cramer to get the facts straight on his “Get the Facts” website. Sad!
