An American couple has just revealed how much money they are able to save from the White House’s tax plan, and the amount is much more than the mere “crumbs” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi believes to be, as per Western Journal.
In an appearance on “Fox & Friends,” Lee and Shirleyann Duprey, a couple of Connecticut, talked how the tax cuts have helped them financially.
“It’s a little over $49 a week,” said Lee when asked how much he was saving.
“Well, as we all know, we’re one of the higher tax states,” Lee added. “Last fall, I had cancer surgery so I’m a cancer survivor. I have medical bills to pay so every little bit makes a huge difference.”
Lee’s wife expressed gratitude for the people who made all this possible, especially President Trump.
“I’ve always enjoyed any dollar amount increase in his paycheck, so … I said, ‘ThanksTrump’ and ‘Thanks Republicans.’ We’ll take it.”
“A week after (President Trump) signed (tax reform), I got my first in-person interview and then two weeks ago, I got three in one week,” she added.
“I’ve actually been able to apply to several jobs just this past week. There’s been definitely more jobs available.”
Connecticut, just like many other U.S. states, has seen a great improvement since the Great Recession.
The state’s outgoing Governor, Don Malloy, continues to be disliked by many of his constituents. According to a Morning Consult poll, Mallow is the most unpopular incumbent governor in the U.S., touting an approval rating of 23 percent.
The money the Shirleyann family has saved up in slow-growth has immensely improved their livelihoods.
“We’re savers,” she said of what she is doing with the extra dollars. “We tend to save and we tend to pay down debt. It doesn’t just affect us. … We can help our children a little bit more — and grandchildren. It kind of spreads out for us in all different directions.”
