Republicans Fret Over Tax Bill’s Unpopularity ↦

Alexander Bolton and Naomi Jagoda reporting for The Hill:

Republican lawmakers are concerned about how their tax bill is being viewed by the public and say they need to do a better job of selling it to middle-class and low-income voters.

A CBS News poll conducted last week found that 53 percent of people nationwide disapprove of the GOP tax bill and only 35 percent approve.

OK, I know this is crazy but maybe, just maybe, the problem with the Republicans’ tax bill is not how it is being marketed. Maybe the problem is the content of the bill.
