Remember when President Trump repeatedly asked voters on the campaign trail ‘What do you have to lose by voting for me?’

Perhaps we should now be looking at what those voters were able to gain now that we’ve transitioned from an Obama presidency, to a Trump administration.

Remember the Obama phone lady? The woman who insisted people needed to vote for Obama over Romney in 2012 because the former bestowed free cell phones upon food stamp recipients, while the latter just “suck(ed)?”

If you need a refresher on this woman, please feel free to review the video below …

That was peak Obama supporter right there. Demanding he stay in power simply so she could get free things.

“Everybody in Cleveland, low minorities, got Obama phone,” she said. “Keep Obama in president, you know. He gave us a phone, he gonna do more.”

Now let’s compare and contrast that with what a supporter of President Trump received as a Christmas present earlier this week.

The differences are stark …

What would you prefer – free gifts for little effort, or more of your own hard-earned money back in your pocket?

Speaker Paul Ryan announced that “the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will give typical families of four earning $73,000 per year a $2,059 tax cut in the immediate following year.

In fact, a new study by the Tax Policy Center at Market Watch indicates roughly 143 million Americans will see some form of lower taxes in the year 2018.

At an average of over $2,000 per family, they can purchase a few Obama phones and probably toss in a whole bunch of chargers as well.

We’ll take the tax cuts over a free phone any day.

Would you?

Which is the better route – handing people free stuff like the Obama phone, or letting them keep more eon their own hard-earned money? Share your thoughts below!
