As prominent Democratic leaders publicly decry the recently passed GOP tax bill as the “end of the world” and “Armageddon,” fans of socialist Senator Bernie Sanders secretly support the legislation, according to filmmaker Ami Horowitz.
Horowitz took to the streets of New York City’s super-liberal neighborhood the East Village to speak with Bernie supporters, and find out their thoughts behind the Republican-led effort to re-structure America’s over-complicated and outdated tax system.
One more thing… they were told the bill was written by Sanders himself.
“Bernie came out with a competing plan,” fibbed Horowitz. “I want to give you some of his points, and see what you think of it.”
The filmmaker proceeded to outline the GOP tax bill, touting key provisions in the legislation that will cut taxes for over 80% of Americans.
“I think that’s a good plan, yeah!” said one individual. “It’s a good thing.”
“I can definitely side with that!” said another.
