Bernie Sanders, along with many Democrats, were extremely upset on Friday when the GOP passed tax reform through the Senate. The midnight vote passed 49 to 51 after a series of ninth-hour amendments. It is seen as a major legislative victory for the GOP, which has struggled to find consensus on major legislation in the Senate. Leader McConnell touted the passage as a victory for the American people, saying it was a “great day for the country.”
Not unsurprisingly, Bernie Sanders took to Twitter to complain about the passage of tax reform. The democratic socialist from Vermont said the bill was “looting” the American people.
I say to my Republican colleagues: The American people are catching on. While you may get away with this act of looting tonight, history is not on your side.

In response, Sanders was savaged by Conservative Twitter.
I love fiscal responsibility talk from socialists https://t.co/ySvQupcU3T

However, no one dropped the hammer harder than the outspoken son of President Trump, Donald Trump Jr. Don Jr. took to Twitter to respond to Sanders, hitting him hard for his socialist leanings.
I’m still trying to figure out how letting Americans keep more of THEIR money is looting… but you know logic and such is long gone with the libs. Also socialists likely shouldn’t talk about looting and history in the same sentence. #yourewelcome
