If by some chance you haven’t seen the video below, by all means watch it.  Here’s the quick summary by David French:

… CBS talked to three different families in three very different financial circumstances — a single mom in North Carolina who makes less than $40,000 per year, a married couple in Rhode Island with no kids who make $150,000 per year, and California parents with three kids who make more than $300,000. Each family gets a break – which shouldn’t surprise anyone who’s closely followed the details of the tax plan. But two of the families thought their taxes would be higher.

Procedurally, we’ve seen a lot of comparisons between the GOP’s tax cut and the passage of ObamaCare, but the direction is entirely different, thanks to the mainstream media’s converse activism in both cases.  Some parts of ObamaCare proved popular, but they were well advertised.  The surprises were the things that folks were told would not happen, like losing plans and doctors that they liked.

With the tax cut, the surprise will be that most people will actually see a decrease in their taxes.  If the plan delivers on stronger economic growth, as well, public opinion could not just improve, but flip.
