The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) has teamed up with “Arrested Development” and “Community” producer Ben Wexler to create a comedy advertisement that slams the Republican tax bill.
The ad, entitled “Diamond Teeth,” depicts a room full of executives discussing which extravagant activity each one will do with their massive savings from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, Trump’s signature tax plan, that will overwhelmingly benefit the wealthiest Americans while delivering minimal – if any – results to the most vulnerable citizens.
The ad aired today to counter Republicans’ PR blitz for Tax Day, celebrating it as the “last time the American people will file taxes under a complicated & outdated tax system.”
So many people are seeing the benefits of the Tax Cut Bill. Everyone is talking, really nice to see!

Republicans may feel as if their misinformation campaign will turn the tide of public opinion, but the number will clearly speak for themselves. This bill was a gift to the rich, with only scraps left over for the rest of America.
