If we can pick one major topic that brings Americans together it would be our indifference towards taxes in the US.
Not a single person wants to truly pay taxes, and many Americans on the left feel that the rich should just pay them all.
Now, more than ever before, it is simple to have built-in reactions to anything you don’t approve with. If we can push through the pride and loftiness and actually investigate things for ourselves, we’ll find the world isn’t as horrible as some would like us to believe.
Recently, a film crew went out to find everyday Americans and gave them a copy of the historic tax bill Donald Trump just passed, but it told them it was actually Bernie Sanders’s plan. As you’ll see, Americans may have a disdain for taxes, but they are lacking in tax bill literacy.
When asked about the current “Republican Tax Plan,” it was met with your typical replies of “It’s going to destroy the middle class.”
But when they began hearing the proposals, they actually loved them and agreed strongly.
“Families making less than $50,000 will pay nothing in taxes.”
“That’s a good plan.”
“Double the child tax credit from $1,000 to $2,000”
“It’s a good thing.”
“He keeps the Obama-era tax credits for clean energy.”
“He keeps the Obama-era tax credit? Yeah, Oh one hundred thousand billion percent.”
“What do you think of Bernie’s tax plan?”
“Now, what if I tell you this was all in Trump’s tax plan?”
“Oh, this is one of those things?”
Watch the video to see their full reactions. Trust us, you’re gonna enjoy the looks on their faces.
