Here is Newt Gingrich explaining that despite the media’s attempt to mislead, the tax reform bill is historic:
Analysts, historians, and scholars will look back on this week as the moment the Trump Administration became truly historic.
The publication of the National Security Strategy report on Monday, followed by the passage of the largest change to the tax code in 31 years, guarantees that President Trump’s first year in office will be seen as a remarkable success.
These are two very big achievements, and without the right leadership, focus, and determination, both could have easily failed.
The hostile and bitter news media has been, and continues to be, relentless in their mission to mislead the American people about the progress President Trump and Republicans are making.
They have continuously lied about Trump’s foreign and national security policies.
Similarly, they have spent the last few months misconstruing reports about tax reform. They have lied about policies and gone out of their way to emphasize anything about the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that they view as negative, while skillfully avoiding covering the cuts, credits, and reforms that will benefit hard-working Americans.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi have been as relentlessly hostile as the news media and have been more focused on escalating anti-Trump pressure and “resistance” than working with Republicans and the President to pass positive reforms for the American people.
However, despite facing all of this aversion, the Republican team banded together and worked toward achieving big goals and implementing bold changes.
And this week, America saw them succeed.
Two very big, long-term projects came to fruition in a three-day period. One had taken almost a year. The other could be traced back to Paul Ryan’s call for tax reform in December of 1998 – before he was even sworn in as a freshman House member. In fact, it could be traced back 25 years to his work for Senator Bob Kasten and later, former Congressman Jack Kemp on supply-side economics and job creation.
Both of these historic achievements reflected candidate Trump’s campaign pledges.
