Bernie Sanders (accidentally?) admitted that the GOP’s tax cut for the middle class was a “very good thing.” But then he attacked Republicans for not making their tax cut permanent. So Ted Cruz called his bluff.
CNN’s Jake Tapper: “Next year, 91% of middle income Americans will receive a tax cut. Isn’t that a good thing?”
Bernie Sanders: “Yeah, it is a very good thing. And that’s why we should’ve made the tax cuts for the middle class permanent”
Ted Cruz: “I agree, Bernie Sanders — let’s make the middle-class tax cuts permanent. Join me, we’ll co-sponsor legislation (I’ve already got it drafted) that does exactly that, and we’ll get it passed in January.”
