Suddenly, tax reform bill critics change their tune

The following article appeared in the American Thinker on December 23rd

The "tax cuts for the rich" complaint about the just passed tax reform bill is morphing into its polar opposite.  Trump-hating Atlantic Magazine editor David Frum has identified a new victim class the GOP is hurting, and it ain't the poor and the powerless:

Most Americans will probably see a tax cut in 2018 and for at least a few years thereafter. But upper-income professionals in blue states will be hammered immediately and hard. https://t.co/w4uKHcnbWS

Wait a minute!  So who is the party of the rich these days?
David Frum

I eagerly await the voter turnout efforts next November in the black and Hispanic communities, as well as those of the labor unions, under the banner of "Trump's tax cuts unfair to upper-income people!"

Ed. For decades, the left has complained that the rich were not paying their "fair share" of taxes. Of course, no one bothered to define what that “fair share” happens to be; we were only told that it wasn’t being paid!

And now, David Frum complains about a tax package which will make certain that those who Democrats believe to be living too good a life, will actually PAY their fair share!

There is just no satisfying some people!
