Because Americans’ many blessings – the nation’s wealth and abundance, its families, its heritage, its community, the parades and football games – apparently are not enough to occupy conversation at your Thanksgiving dinner table this year, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., has come to your rescue.
He has urged citizens, via Twitter, to take to Thanksgiving dinner his chart, the “JCT: Revised Senate Finance Tax Bill Raises Taxes on Low- and Moderate-Income People, Gives Tax Cuts to the Top. (Average percentage change in after-tax income, 2027).”

“Bring this chart to Thanksgiving dinner. It’ll come in handy what that family member who always talks politics tells you the Republican tax bill helps the middle class,” he wrote.
“What is it with the ‘crazy Republican uncle’ every liberal seems to dread seeing every Thanksgiving,” wrote a blogger for the social-media aggregating news site Twitchy.
“As Twitchy has reported, liberal groups are always coming up with placemats full of talking points on social justice and gun control, and there’s even a hotline to text when those tough conversations about racial justice break out. What’s Sen. Chuck Schumer bringing to Thanksgiving dinner this year? A handy chart on the Republican tax plan, that’s what.”
Katie Pavlich responded with, “Stop ruining everything.”
Nathan Wurtzel posted a comment: “People who bring charts go to the kids table.
Another wrote: “You bring food or beverages or stay the — home.”
Bohemio said: “We have a table for people who bring charts. It’s in the back yard – several acres away from the rest of us.”
ForAmerica wrote: “If you bring a tax chart to Thanksgiving dinner you should be forced to eat outside by the trash can. With no beverage. No dessert.”
“My family & I will be discussing our #blessings, not our sickening N.Y. representatives,” said Christine Rhyner.
And Ed Whelan said: “Yeah, let’s be sure to politicize everything. Great way to make sure that gratitude doesn’t make an appearance.”
A commenter calling himself Comfortably Smug wrote: “Bring this photo to Thanksgiving dinner. It’ll come in handy when that family member who always talks politics tells you the Democrats respect women.”
It’s the image of Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., putting his hands on a sleeping woman.
