Fox Business’ Trish Regan Slams GOP Tax Bill: Individuals ‘Carrying the Water’ for Corporations


Fox Business host Trish Regan strayed from her typically pro-Trump talking points in a segment today as she slammed the president and GOP’s tax bill, saying the legislation could force “individuals to carry water for corporations.”

Regan also called out President Donald Trump on the issue by suggesting he is not fulfilling his many promises to lower taxes on all Americans, including the middle and lower class.

The Fox Business anchor said the following during this afternoon’s airing of The Intelligence Report:

“Yes, I love the idea of lower corporate taxes, but I really do not like what they’re doing on the individual side. My concern here is it’s going to hurt the individual. And so, effectively, individuals are carrying the water for these corporations — they get that great tax cut on the corporate side, but people are not gonna’ get it on the individual side. I just don’t think that’s fair because look at what the president has been promising everyone basically all year.”

While Trump has compared this tax plan to a “Christmas present,” Regan pushed back on that characterization and likened it to the opposite.

“I don’t think it’s gonna be much of a Christmas present, it’s more like getting coal in your stocking because your tax bill is gonna’ go up,” said the host.

Additionally, in a tweet on the matter, she bashed the GOP for their bill — using words in all caps — and said they “can do better.”

“President Trump promised a HUGE tax cut for Christmas. This bill is good for CORPORATIONS, but for individuals, this is more like an ugly piece of coal! C’mon, you guys can do better!” Tweeted Regan.
