Drudge: "Republicans Lied About Tax Cuts", Wants His Vote Back
Zero Hedge --
In what may be his most vocal complaint aimed at the Republican party since the Trump presidential victory, prominent conservative voice Matt Drudge on Tuesday accused the GOP of "lying" about wanting tax cuts, and asked to "get his vote back."
BTW, Republicans lied about wanting tax cuts. Can we get our votes back?

Delays surrounding the repeal of Obamacare, which as Goldman earlier said will likely be postponed by several months if not longer following the controversial CBO report, will asure significant delays with the implementation of Trump tax cuts. Furthermore, the Republican healthcare plan would repeal most of ObamaCare's taxes: a prospect that looks increasingly distant. Earlier this month, the Joint Committee on Taxation released estimates showing the repeal and delay of many of ObamaCare's taxes in the GOP healthcare plan would result in more than $500 billion in lost federal revenue.
The Trump team's reform plan "will reduce the tax rate on our companies so they can compete and thrive anywhere and with anyone," the president said during an address to a joint session of Congress. He also said the plan "will provide massive tax relief for the middle class."
In a separate tweet, Drudge also questioned the National Weather Service in light of Tuesday's snowstorm.
