Fox Business Host Rips Trump, GOP Tax Plan: ‘Seems Like Our Country Is Becoming Ungovernable’




Fox Business’ “The Intelligence Report” host Trish Regan blasted the GOP tax reform bill on Monday, asking how it was fair that “a private equity investor has a lower tax bracket” than a New York city police officer while wondering if “our country is becoming ungovernable.”

Regan also ripped President Trump for failing to keep his promise to close the special interest loopholes while catering to high-earning “private equity fat cats.”

“Those private equity fat cats get away with paying investment taxes instead of income taxes, and this is just wrong,” she said. “So why doesn’t anyone care?’

“I’m beginning to wonder if our country is becoming ungovernable, because I’ll tell you one thing, our founding fathers never ever anticipated a swamp like the one we have today.”




“How is it fair that a private equity investor has a LOWER tax bracket than a NYC Cop?! This is just WRONG! Wasn’t the President supposed to CLOSE these special interest loopholes? Seems like our country is becoming ungovernable,” she tweeted.

According to a recent CNN poll, 95 percent of Democrats think the tax bill will favor the wealthy, while just 27 percent of Republicans said the same.

The Hill added:

No Democrats are expected to vote “yes” on the bill. Vice President Pence’s office announced on Monday he will delay his planned trip to the Middle East until next month in case his tie-breaking vote is needed in the Senate to pass the bill.

House and Senate Republicans are set to hold final votes on their tax reform bill, which would mark Trump’s first major legislative victory since taking office on Jan. 20.
