“Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough ripped the GOP tax plan on Monday, saying that by cutting corporate tax rates and increasing the deficit over the next decade it would “steal” trillions of dollars from young voters.
“Millennials, you just had $1.5 trillion stolen from you,” Scarborough said. “Past Congresses have stolen $20 trillion from you, and over the next ten years, they’re going to steal another $10 trillion from you. And they’re going to die, and then you’re going to be left holding the bill.”
A recent analysis by the Joint Committee on Taxation estimated that the GOP tax plan would increase the deficit by nearly $1.5 trillion over the next decade.
Scarborough predicted that the bill is “going to turn a lot of people into socialists” and damage the national economy.
“Republicans who claim to care about the debt are voting to steal $1.5 trillion from millennials, the very people who, 48 percent are saying, ‘no, we don’t like the Republican Party,’” Scarborough said.
