Bad optics, lib-style! Same week millions notice more $$ in their paychecks, Dem guvs sue to get rid of the reason

The shot:

And the chaser:

New Jersey and Connecticut are joining New York in planning to sue Washington over the Republican-led federal tax overhaul, the Democratic governors of the three states announced Friday.

Andrew Cuomo of New York, Dannel Malloy of Connecticut and Phil Murphy of New Jersey announced Friday that they’re talking to leaders of other states that stand to be hurt by the federal tax plan that’s expected to cost taxpayers in their states billions of dollars.

“We’re going to be working together to form a multi-state coalition to challenge this in court,” said Cuomo, a potential 2020 White House contender who announced his intention to challenge the tax overhaul earlier this month.

Good luck with that, Dems! That’s right up there with Hillary going to coal country before the 2016 election and pledging to put a lot of people in the industry out of jobs. Do the Democrats really wonder why they lost power?

Those Dems would rather destroy the reason workers are getting more money back in their paychecks than explain to their wealthier constituents why their state taxes are so ridiculously high and nobody else is going to subsidize them anymore.

  1. I really don’t quite grasp why these governors think that they can overturn an act of Congress that is clearly constitutional, but I guess they have to do something to distract from the fact that they’re driving all of the businesses out of their states with taxes and regulation.
