Alyssa Milano mangles the truth in tweet rant against Trump on tax day

Hollywood actress and outspoken liberal Alyssa Milano attempted to bash President Donald Trump in a Twitter rant about tax day, but instead managed to mangle key facts about Republican tax cuts.

"Now that Tax Day is almost here, and Americans are seeing for themselves who the Republican Party really cares about," Milano tweeted, adding a list of points about the federal tax filing deadline.

3/ According to a recent NBC/WSJ poll, only 17 percent of Americans think their taxes went down, and a majority don’t think they got any tax cut at all. And this isn’t partisan. Only 33 percent of Republicans think they got a tax cut.
But, as the New York Times reports, Americans' perceptions of whether they got a tax cut does not match with the reality of whether they got a tax cut. While 64.8 percent of Americans actually received a tax cut, only about 40 percent believe they got a tax cut.

4/ And we just learned from the Center for Public Integrity that the number of big companies that pay zero taxes—that’s right, zero—have gone from 30 to 60.

5/ But here’s the thing—Americans aren’t dumb. We knew from the beginning what Republicans were doing. As of March, the GOP tax scam only had a 36 percent approval rating. That’s worse than Trump’s.
The New York Times report also explains why Americans have such a low opinion about the Republican tax plan - propaganda from liberals like Milano.

"To a large degree, the gap between perception and reality on the tax cuts appears to flow from a sustained — and misleading — effort by liberal opponents of the law to brand it as a broad middle-class tax increase," the report states.

Milano drew her anti-Republican and anti-Trump conclusions from opinion divorced from reality.

"We knew the @GOP was just doing a giant favor for their corporate donors and friends," Milano said in the last tweet of her rant. "We knew it would add to an already unsustainable deficit. And we knew the middle class were an afterthought."
In 2017, Milano blamed a Trump aide for a store's holiday arrangement that she said was pro-Nazi.
