With Tax Cuts, Republicans Need to Let Democrats Make Their Case for Them

Originally Published in RealClearMarkets on 10/2/17.

[...] Which brings us to commentary from the left about the Republican tax proposal released last week. It’s been demeaned as a “wish list of tax cuts for the wealthy” by the New York Times editorial page, and then the Tax Policy Center lamented that the top 1 percent of taxpayers will “receive about 50 percent of the total tax benefit.” The left’s response was so predictable, but it also arguably created a huge opportunity for Republicans. Rather than run from the attempted slights, members of the Trump administration, GOP lawmakers, and pundits should embrace the mindless lefty critiques, and in the process make sure that their tax cuts more than live up to what the left despise about them.
