The Republicans are much better at promoting their bad policies than Democrats are at pushing their better policies. First, Republicans are willing to lie while ignoring real-time and past evidence and truth. This article should worry Democrats who think a sure blue wave is secure especially with the passage of the Republican tax cut scam.
Republicans control most of the state legislatures and the entire Federal Government because they are good at what they do, successfully deceive for the gain of their party. It is time for Democrats and Progressives to change their tactics. Otherwise, the insanity will prevail. One must remember that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.
Well, Republicans do not want a different result, and as such, they are going through their playbook. They will keep doing the same thing until some external force stops that working thing from working.
One should be fearful after reading Jessica Corbett’s article “Right-wing Groups Plan to Spend Millions to Convince Americans GOP Tax Scam Is Actually Good for them” which lays out the same old GOP playbook.
While recent polling indicates that the majority of Americans oppose the GOP tax plan signed by President Donald Trump early Friday, Politico reports right-wing groups are planning a multimillion-dollar campaign to promote the deeply unpopular new law.
Despite a CNN poll revealing that only a third of Americans favor the Republicans’ tax plan while 55 percent oppose it—a 10-point jump from just last month—Trump seems to be ignoring the widespread opposition.
Damn the polls; Republicans rammed through the tax cut scam. And they are heading straight ahead with lying about it to convince Americans that it is right for them.
Conservative donors, however, are planning to invest heavily in efforts to shift public perception of the plan, which gives massive tax breaks to corporations and wealthy individuals at the expense of American families, and was deemed the #GOPTaxScam by critics as it made its way through Congress.
“The Koch network will launch a multimillion-dollar push next year to sell the bill, with paid advertising and town halls,” according to Politico. “A major GOP super PAC is planning to spend $10 million to protect House members. And another group, the Committee to Unleash Prosperity, plans to spend the majority of its $1 million annual budget selling the tax plan next year, according to one of the group’s founders, Stephen Moore.”
Read the entire article. The GOP modus operandi is in full vogue. The progressive counter attack must be fierce and smart.
