With Republicans in position to pass their controversial Tax Bill, the opposition to the plan [VIDEO] in question has only increased. One of the bill's most outspoken opponents has been MSNBC host Joy Reid, who divulged a little behind the scenes information about the Republican's motive on her social media account.

Reid on tax bill

After Donald Trump was elected president, it was only a matter of time [VIDEO] before Republicans took advantage of their majority control in both the House of Representatives and the Senate. Starting in the first few weeks of his time in office, the former host of "The Apprentice" vowed to follow through on his campaign promise of delivering the biggest tax cut since the Ronald Reagan administration.

While there were issue at the start, Republicans and the president have been able to get on board and are on the verge of making Trump's promise come true. Despite this, the majority of the country is opposed to the bill, with over 53 percent pushing back according to a recent CNN poll. In addition, non-partisan studies have shown the bill heavily favors the wealthy and is projected to increase the national debt by $1.7 trillion over the next 10 years. On Tuesday, the House voted to pass the bill, but was forced to reschedule the vote after it didn't reach the Senate requirements of the "Bird rule." Giving her thoughts on the issue was Joy Reid, who did so by exposing the Republican motive for supporting the bill during a pair of tweets on December 19.

In a series of tweets on Tuesday night, host of MSNBC's "A.M.

Joy," Joy Reid, ripped into Republicans for supporting the tax bill and giving a little information as to why they have been so insistent on getting it to the president's desk. "I had a Republican source tell me quite plainly: @BobCorker and other Republicans don't care what Americans say," Reid tweeted out. "They are 'cashing out.' That's what this GOP tax bill is about," she added.

In a follow-up tweet, Joy Reid elaborated further. "That's the verbatim phrase this Republican used: 'cashing ... out.' They'll go home and reap the rewards in their personal finances and pass the lard onto their kids with no estate tax," she wrote, before concluding, "They (GOP) truly don't care." During another tweet on the issue, Reid called out several Republican lawmakers who have dodged questions about why the support the bill, including Sen.

Bob Corker and Sen. Lindsey Graham.

Tax future

With the House of Representatives set to vote again on Wednesday, it's expected to easily pass and move onto the Senate. Though getting the bill through the Senate will be more difficult, the feeling in Washington is that it will have enough support to head over to Donald Trump for his signature.
