So “Progressive” now means “by any means necessary, including outright lies, to make sure President Trump is taken down” ?
Ok, got it.

Vox writer Matthew Yglesias praised progressive groups for misleading Americans about their taxes Monday.
In a tweet, Yglesias praised the “messaging success” over President Donald Trump’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. The president signedthe bill into law in December 2017. At the time, then-Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) said the bill would save families making $73,000 per year more than $2,000.
“[P]rogressive groups did a really good job of convincing people that Trump raised their taxes,” Yglesias said.
At the time, Democratic Party messaging insisted the bill was a catastrophe for the middle class. Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D., N.Y.) said “the middle class got the crumbs from the table.” Sen. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) claimed the proposal “socks it to the middle class.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) said “[e]ighty-six million middle-class families will see a tax increase.” In February, Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) called the tax change “a middle-class tax hike.”….
According to the Tax Policy Center, the average middle class family is keeping almost $1,000 which would have previously gone into government coffers….
Nobody likes to give themselves credit for this kind of messaging success, but progressive groups did a really good job of convincing people that Trump raised their taxes when the facts say a clear majority got a tax cut. https://t.co/tcZFr8l9Ck
