Grover Norquist: GOP May Add Congress Seats After Tax Cuts

(Newsmax TV's "Newsmax Now")

By    |   Monday, 15 January 2018 09:02 PM

History says Republicans might gain seats in Congress this year because of the tax cuts signed into law by President Donald Trump, tax expert Grover Norquist told Newsmax TV.

Norquist talked taxes on "Newsmax Now" and gave a history lesson when discussing the 2018 midterms and the GOP's chances of holding on to its majorities in the House and Senate.

"Bill Clinton raised taxes and lost 52 House seats," Norquist said. "Obama raised taxes and lost over 60 House seats. President [H.W.] Bush cut taxes and he lost 27, half as many as the Democrats did and half of those were because of redistricting 80-82. "Then you go to George W. Bush, elected in 2000, he gained House seats.

"Trump has come in and has cut taxes . . . For the next 10 months, every two weeks, people see a bigger paycheck from lower taxes. And in the case of millions and millions of Americans, bigger paychecks because of bonuses and pay increases, and half the country sees a dramatic increase in their life savings due to the stock market going up because of the lower business taxes, and then after that the jobs created by a stronger and growing economy."

Norquist added, "You kinda have a difficult situation explaining to people that that's what Armageddon looks like."

Several Republican lawmakers are retiring after this year and Democrats are trying to tie every Republican candidate — incumbents and challengers — to Trump, hoping to persuade Americans to vote against the president's party.
