Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) dressed down Democrats on President Donald Trump’s tax cuts on Monday, leaving them silent on the House floor.
The Texas Republican declared the two parties have drastically different views on the role of government.
"It seems to me that you all believe the role of government is to tax the people as much as possible so that you & your benevolent fellow academics can dream up more programs for the gov't to spend money on,” Crenshaw said.
He continued: “I don’t believe that. … The role of government is to protect God-given rights that we have and to ensure that we live as free as possible. The role of government is to tax people to the least extent possible while still taxing them enough to cover basic needs for government.”
For Democrats unaware of what those “needs” are, Crenshaw referred them to the United States Constitution.
He went on to list real-life results of tax reform on his constituents in Texas.
The list was extensive.
"These are not imaginative anecdotes," Crenshaw concluded.

This is why Crenshaw is quickly becoming a favorite among conservatives and Republicans.
The tax cuts are popular and Trump knows it. He has since started referring to Democrats as the "Party of late term abortion, high taxes, Open Borders and Crime!"
The GOP tax reform bill doubled the standard deduction for married couples and also doubled the child tax credit, two huge wins for American families.
