Bernie Supporters Love the Republican Tax Plan

By The Stream Published on January 7, 2018

Documentary filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently took to the streets of New York’s East Village to see how Bernie Sanders supporters feel about the GOP’s new tax bill.

Sanders supporters initially expressed distaste towards the bill. But Horowitz was curious to see what they would think if they approached it with an open mind. So he pitched several of the bill’s provisions under that guise that they were part of a plan proposed by Sanders. Only later did Horowitz reveal that he’d actually been describing the GOP’s bill.

“I definitely am going to look into this,” one person said. “Thanks for opening my mind to that.”

Another said, “This would be the first time I would sit here and say, ‘Well the Republicans might be doing something well.'”

Be sure to watch the video to see the reactions for yourself, and visit Prager University on YouTube for more great content.
