The Hill reports:
Savannah Guthrie asked Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) during an interview on NBC’s “Today” show early Wednesday if he was “living in a fantasy world” to think that the GOP tax bill will help workers.
Guthrie quoted former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (I), who said in an op-ed earlier this month that such an argument is “pure fantasy.”
Ryan pushed back, citing a survey from the National Association of Business Manufacturers.
“Surveys would show the vast majority of businesses are going to do just what we say, reinvest in their workers, reinvest in their factories, pay people more money, higher wages,” he said.
