Kamala Harris is considered one of the frontrunners in the Democrat Presidential primary.
Many pundits think she could be the one to defeat Donald Trump.
But she just got caught telling a ridiculous lie that immediately blew up in her face.
Part of running for President as a Democrat in 2020 is waging total war on Donald Trump on every front.
Harris tried to do that by attacking Trump’s 2017 tax cut bill.
The California Democrat seized on media reports that tax refunds were slightly lower this year as opposed to last year as evidence Trump’s bill was a “giveaway” to the rich.
The average tax refund is down about $170 compared to last year. Let’s call the President’s tax cut what it is: a middle-class tax hike to line the pockets of already wealthy corporations and the 1%.

This lie was quickly debunked.
Refunds were lower this year compared to last year because Americans paid less money in taxes.
Thanks to the tax cut, less money was withheld and take home pay went up.
Of course refunds would be lower.
That’s a good thing.
A tax refund means you overpaid the government in taxes, essentially giving the government an interest free loan.
Instead of that, Trump’s bill put the money back in the bank accounts of the American people.
If Kamala Harris is going to campaign on the idea that American people having more money is a bad thing, then Donald Trump does not have much to worry about in 2020.
