Evasion Kings And Tax Plan Snake Oil (VIDEO)

The evasion game from members of Congress who are selling snake-oil regarding the Trump/Ryan tax plan is in full load mode. 

Now, spend a few minutes observing a professional evader avoid answering a key question from an MSNBC Morning Joe show co-host, Willie Geist. Trump's House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX), fulfilled his evasive role as well as any member of Congress who accepted on-camera questioning on the national GOP Tax Day.

The gest of the question related to how the wealthy benefit from the current GOP tax plan. 
“that average family making $73,000 a year — I mean, both blue collars workers — will see a tax cut of $2,059 in this tax bill.”

National Public Radio published a piece related to the impact of the GOP tax plan on the scope of the US income strata. We have linked the piece here.

Of course, the GOP's nascent on-camera lover from Virginia secured his five minutes on MSNBC. As one listened to Rep. Dave Brat, it is impossible to avoid comparison as a carnival-barking snake oil salesman comparable to Trump and KellyAnne Conway. We offer Brat in his bloviating glory. 

Katy ur seems to handle the bloviator better than most on MSNBC. Of course, some MSNBC show hosts don't reach to book Brat on their shows. I wonder why?

Brat won his seat in the US House after the former House Leader and representative of Virginia, Eric Cantor, sat in a fancy upper crust steakhouse with GOP money backers. He ran as a Tea Party "darling" via the facade of conservative spending. Rational Americans have to wonder why the GOP is expanding enough energy to land another person on the Moon working to pass a bill which carries a $1.5 to 2 Trillion hit to the US Deficit. 

The United States has a problem.
