Remember when Trump announced he would cut taxes for the middle class just prior to the midterm election?
Whatever happened with that?
We know Trump's middle class tax cut was never real, but it's so much more amusing when Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin pretends he doesn't know what time of day it is.
The Trump administration is setting aside a middle-class tax cut and planning to focus its tax efforts next year on fixing mistakes in the 2017 overhaul, according to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. [...]
“I’m not going to comment on whether it is a real thing or not a real thing,” Mnuchin said in a roundtable interview Tuesday at Bloomberg’s Washington office. “I’m saying for the moment we have other things we’re focused on.”
It's okay, Steve, everyone knows it's not a real thing. You can just say that.
