The Senate and House passed the GOP tax reform bill yesterday, and after a second procedural vote today, it will travel to the Gloater-in-Chief’s desk for signature, but House Leader Paul Ryan (R-WI) wasn’t too busy to blow smoke up everyone’s ass about it on NBC this morning.

Watch:

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (I), an opponent of the bill, said this about it:

CEOs aren’t waiting on a tax cut to ‘jump-start the economy’–a favorite phrase of politicians who have never run a company–or to hand out raises. It’s pure fantasy to think that the tax bill will lead to significantly higher wages and growth.

When NBC host Savannah Guthrie asked Ryan point blank whether he lived in said fantasy world, Ryan came back with this, citing a survey from the National Association of Manufacturers:

Surveys would show the vast majority of businesses are going to do just what we say, reinvest in their workers, reinvest in their factories, pay people more money, higher wages.

To be fair, NAM did sort of say that:

Then again, who in the f*ck is NAM? They’re essentially a lobbying firm for manufacturers.

Anyway, this is the most telling part of what Ryan said:

“Nobody knows the answer to that question.” That’s what people tell their kids when they ask if their pets go to heaven when they die.
