Man, Steve Forbes does NOT like the GOP tax plan! In fact in this interview he very blithely calls it a “betrayal” against him.

Before the segment, Trump’s own Treasury Secretary says they LIKE the plan!! Forbes says they should have instead done a simple tax cut, make it effective immediately and call it a day. But in an odd delusion for Forbes, he thinks that Trump would have made the process better if he had not been away in Asia – because of his tweets!!
I’m not saying I love the plan, I’m saying I very much doubt Trump would have improved the plan by his involvement.
Maybe Forbes is just being optimistic, but there’s nothing in the process of attempting to repeal Obamacare that shows Trump is engaged at all about these things – why would it have been any better for the tax plan? In any case, I guess we’ll see what Trump will do when he gets back. I have a feeling he’s desperate to pass anything just to prove he’s “winning,” and he’s never been great on the details…
