You Can't Make This Up: Tim Scott Promotes 'Keep 'Yo Money'
September 29, 2017

I would love to tell you that Saturday Night Live is back on the air, and this is a preview of their cold open for tomorrow.

But Saturday Night Live would never be as tone deaf as Senate Republicans. How could they? Here's the Senate Republicans' Big Idea for how to market their tax plan.

Tim Scott saying "Keep 'Yo Money!"

Roll Call reports that Scott came up with the hashtag himself?!?

Multiple Twitter users subsequently deployed the hashtag, which Scott developed himself, in original tweets.

“Senator Scott is passionate about tax reform, specifically when it comes to helping Americans keep more of their paychecks,” the senator’s spokeswoman Michele Exner said Thursday. “He also has a sense of humor.”

Sense of Humor, eh?

Tim Scott's "sense of humor" is stuck in 1990 along with his party's imaginary "tax cuts pay for themselves" economics.
