Rep. David Cicilline Opposes Trump Tax Plan with ‘Grinch’ Parody Poem

David Cicilline

Just in time for the holidays

While the House debated the Trump tax plan, one representative put the plan into context for working Americans with a classic Christmas tale.

Openly gay Rep. David Cicilline took the House floor and adapted a Dr. Seuss classic to explain the dangers of the tax plan, called "How the Grinch Stole Middle Class Tax Cuts."

The parody poem claims that middle-class deductions would be stolen to make room for corporate cuts. Cicilline also took the chance to take shots at the president himself, questioning why he would support such a cruel plan.

"It could be his head was screwed on a bit wrong," Cicilline said. "It could be his ties were two inches too long."
