The Hill reports:
The Drudge Report’s Matt Drudge sent out a rare tweet Wednesday morning criticizing the GOP for making concessions to Democrats on taxes and health care, saying there is no longer an “illusion” of difference between the two major parties.
“First keep Obamacare, now raise taxes on top earners? At least illusion there is difference between parties is finished once and for all!” Drudge said, taking aim at proposals in the new GOP tax plan.
The website also led with a scathing headline: “More Betrayal Republican Plan to Raise Taxes.” Republicans Wednesday unveiled their framework for a major tax overhaul, which includes big cuts to corporate taxes and lowering individual tax rates, and completely nixing the estate tax.
But the plan also says that “an additional top rate may apply to the highest-income taxpayers to ensure that the reformed tax code is at least as progressive” as the current one.
