Home Depot Founder Goes Off On Democrats For Criticizing Trump's Tax Plan

Just before the holidays, the long-anticipated GOP tax plan was finally signed into law by President Donald Trump. In the aftermath, there have been plenty of promising signs that the plan's goal of further stimulating the United States economy is starting to take root.

A number of companies have responded by offering up bonuses to their employees, while others have announced their intention to invest even more into their US operations while hiring additional employees. All the while, the stock market continues to soar to record highs, and employees across the nation are looking forward to seeing increases in their take-home pay as soon as next month.

While all of that sounds like great news, Democrats contend that the plan as a whole is a bad thing. Democrats claim that the plan benefits the few while impacting many, but the facts thus far have shown that the opposite is in fact the case.

As the Blaze shares, Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus recently appeared on Fox News to offer up his take on whether or not the plan is a good thing, and it sounds like it’s a no-brainer as far as he’s concerned.

“You wanna talk about somebody who is off the charts and doesn’t understand reality…it’s [Senate Minority Leader Chuck] Schumer and Pelosi. One thousand dollars is so meaningful…its more than meaningful — it could be paying the mortgage, it could be paying for a car repair, it could be paying for a past due bill,” he said.

“These are things the Pelosi/Schumer group don’t have a clue about. It’s why they lost the election — it’s as simple as that!"

"They are so with their elitists…and [Hillary] Clinton never knew about the real people out there and that’s why they lost the election. And that’s why they’re going to lose the next election for the same reason.”

Marcus is referring to a comment from House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, who derided any bonuses that employees may receive as ‘crumbs’ in the grand scheme of things. Home Depot is among the many companies that have stepped up to the plate with bonuses and raises for employees, and it’s quite clear that Marcus takes umbrage with Democrats attempting to portray the plan as a bad deal for taxpayers.

“Remember, this is not the U.S. government. When [businesses] make an investment they do it because there’s got to be a return on invested capital," he said.

"So they’re gonna do smart things, they’re gonna make smart moves,” Marcus continued.

“Democrats, use your stupid brains. You don’t have any brains!”

In the world of partisan politics, it’s perfectly normal for one side to take issue with plans or proposals that are brought to light by the other side. Quite simply, that’s the way things work in the nation’s capital, and it’s a large part of why things are so broken.

However, there are times - albeit few and far between - when plans are implemented that make a ton of sense for the overwhelming majority of American voters. Democrats have made it clear that they disagree with the plan, but they would be wise to pick another battle that they actually stand a chance of winning.
