Republicans have mischaracterized just about every major policy on their agenda. The question is why. If they genuinely believe their policies are correct, why not defend them on the merits?Consider the GOP tax cuts. Last year, Republicans said their bill would primarily benefit the middle class, pay for itself and raise President Trump’s taxes, among other claims.Not one of these contentions is remotely true.
"Republicans Are Mischaracterizing Nearly All Their Major Policies. Why?" is from the October 25, 2018 Opinion section of The Washington Post. It was written by Catherine Rampell and narrated by Jenny Hoops.
