Republican politicians don’t know what to do now that more and more working class Americans are watching their tax refunds shrivel, or worse, watch the amount they owe to the IRS continue to climb. We were promised lower taxes, but those reductions have not materialized and voters are growing angry at the GOP for their constant lies. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.

Republican politicians are panicking right now. As more and more Americans continue to file their taxes and then realize that, oh, I'm not getting a refund this year, or I owe more than I ever have in previous years. Now this has happened in nearly 10% of people who have already filed their taxes. Either the refund is smaller than it was in years past, or they owe more than they had in years past. But the bottom line is that these people understand that they're not actually getting those tax cuts, that Republican's promise them at the end of 2017. So Republicans now have gone on the defensive and we have people like Chuck Grassley out there right now telling us that, no, no, no, they got their tax cuts. It's just Democrats being dishonest about what's happening. And that's why you have these talking points that people aren't getting tax cuts. Uh, the Republican argument at this point is this.
They say that they changed the withholding tables for the IRS. So you may be getting a smaller refund, but it's only because you finally paid the correct amount in taxes. And you didn't pay as much in taxes per paycheck last year cause we adjusted the withholding table. So your paychecks increased. And that's why you're not getting a refund to which a majority of American citizens said what a majority of people in this country reported that their paychecks did not change their federal withholding, their taxes did not change last year. And I emphasize that to show you how bad the Republicans are lying because Chuck Grassley and plenty of Republican strategists, other Republican politicians are literally trying to convince people that their paychecks increased because fewer taxes were being withheld. When those people can very easily look at their pay stub and say, you're, you're lying to me. You're lying to my face.
