The Republicans have been pushing for tax reform since they won the White House, but the new tax bill passed without a single vote from Democrats in the House or the Senate. The goal of the tax bill is to lower taxes and close loopholes, but the vague language used to sell the bill is confusing lawmakers and citizens alike. To help better understand the details of the bill, Vox has created a cartoon that explores the new tax laws with bowls of cereal. In this example, employees are paid in cereal, which the government takes a certain amount from in taxes depending on income. Many Democrats and opponents of the bill argue that the lower and middle class will actually pay more in taxes because the tax reform will take more cereal from their bowls in the future.
