Jackie Speier Compares Trump Tax Plan to Taking Away Tiny Tim’s Crutch

Dear Jackie:

You invoked the name of everyone’s favorite Dickensian character while slamming the Trump tax plan.:

Speaking a day after lawmakers passed a Republican-led tax bill that many say will primarily benefit the ultra-wealthy, members of the Democratic Women’s Working Group and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., slammed the GOP.

“What we’re doing here today is basically saying, ‘Wealthy Americans, big fat Christmas present for you; Tiny Tim, we’re taking your crutch away from you and all the other kids in this country, and we’re putting a lump of coal into your Christmas stocking,'” Speier added.

I humbly have a few problems with your aspersions.

First, as I’m sure you’re aware, $137,000 would buy a whole lot of crutches for a whole lot of kids, even at Medicare prices. But instead, that’s the sum of money your office gave to the polygamist, wife-threatening, laptop thief Imran Awan.

Next, as you are worth at least $5.5MM, it would seem you hobnob with more Ebenezer Scrooge and Mr. Potter types than delightfully well-adjusted sick kids.

Finally, since you know those rich people so well, you should be aware that promising Bob Cratchit a bump in the minimum wage will only lead to either his sacking at the hands of your friends, a higher cost of living due to inflation, or his job being replaced by a robot.

But, hey, you’re a champion of the poor, so what do I know?

Still, in the spirit of the season, I toast your good health. When the Awan scandal is fully known, it’s probably all you’ll have left.

God bless us, everyone.
