Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) admitted to CNN’s Jake Tapper that the GOP tax plan is at the very least a short term benefit for middle class America. He just wishes it was permanent.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) had to agree with him. He is now reaching out his hand hoping Sanders will join his effort to make his wish reality.

Sanders: 80% of proposal’s tax breaks go to 1%
@tedcruz tweeted: “I agree,
@BernieSanders — let’s make the middle-class tax cuts permanent. Join me, we’ll co-sponsor legislation (I’ve already got it drafted) that does exactly that, and we’ll get it passed in January!”
For Cruz to make such an offer is surprising, considering the two political figures went head-to-head on the subject this fall in a debate on CNN.
“What this entire proposal is about is to give tax breaks to people who don’t need it, and you do that by making massive cuts in education, in health care, in housing, in the programs that working families desperately need,” Sanders said at the time.
Liberals are now accusing conservatives of taking Sanders’s chat with Jake Tapper out of context, noting that Sanders has never wavered in his belief that the Republican tax reform plan will unfairly benefit the wealthy and large corporations.
