Political commentator Katie Pavlich said that every single Democrat was against the middle class when they vote no on the tax reform bill.
“Every single Democrat voted against the middle class,” she said.
She said that with this bill approved, Wednesday was a “historic day for the president.”
After being required to vote again on the tax bill after Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) found violations of the Byrd Rule in the original bill, it passed both chambers by Wednesday afternoon.
Pavlich said the accomplishment was a “cherry on top” for President Donald Trump’s first year.
She said that it was “astonishing” that the bill received no Democratic support.
The House passed the GOP’s final tax reform bill by the skin of their teeth, with a 227-203 winning vote.
House Speaker Paul Ryan said on Tuesday, “Today, we are giving the people of this country their money back.”
“This is real relief, and people are going to see this in their paychecks before too long,” Ryan added, “this is the greatest example of a promise being made and a promise being kept.”
The massive tax cut will start giving people larger paychecks as early as February, and is the biggest tax code rewrite since Ronald Reagan.
