Chuck Schumer thought the 2018 midterms were all wrapped up.
He could keep smearing the President, and the anti-Trump media would spread fake news to poison the well.
But he told a big lie about Trump that led to this career-ending disaster.
Schumer and other Democrats were furious the media’s fake news campaign to paint Trump’s tax cut bill as a tax increase failed to stop its passage.
They know that after Ronald Reagan cut taxes in 1981, he went on to a 49 state landslide in 1984.
George W. Bush also won re-election in 2004 after signing tax cuts into law in 2001 and 2003.
Republicans lose elections when they pass tax increases like George H.W. Bush did in the 1990 budget deal.
So Schumer continued to peddle the lie that Trump’s tax cut bill was a heist from the middle class to stuff the pockets of the wealthy.

Today, the President gave himself an early Christmas present – an estimated $11 million tax cut. Who paid for it? My middle class constituents in New York. https://t.co/FoMAXyWXY7

This is false.
Middle class households will receive $61 billion in tax cuts in 2018.
And 91% of the middle class will receive a tax cut.
As Americans see the tax cut bill go into effect, they will see their paychecks are bigger because less money is being withheld in taxes.
The bill’s popularity will increase and it could blunt Democrats momentum in 2018.
If Trump and the GOP see any boost in popularity, it would block the Democrats chances to take over the Senate and kill Schumer’s dream of being Majority Leader.
Schumer running the Senate would mean an end to Trump’s ability to confirm conservative judges and push his legislative agenda.
Do you think Schumer lying about the GOP tax cut bill will come back to bite Democrats?
