Today, a new poll shows the new tax law quickly rising in popularity as Americans see the benefits. In just the last month, according to the survey from NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist, significantly more people believe the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will help them and their families. On net, the poll finds a remarkable 21-point swing in just one month.
This news follows a New York Times poll showing that approval for tax reform has jumped from 37 percent in December to 46 percent today. And for good reason.
In the weeks since President Trump signed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act into law, hundreds of businesses across the country have rewarded their employees with bonuses, pay raises, and other financial benefits. Just yesterday, Apple announced that it would give its employees a $2,500 bonus and invest $350 billion in the U.S. economy in the next five years due in part to tax reform. And come February, 90 percent of Americans will see bigger paychecks as the IRS adjusts withholding tables to account for the new law.
All this goes to show that tax reform is working. Americans are already seeing the benefits, and this is just the beginning.
