What does the official House Republicans and the Legend of Zelda have in common? Absolutely nothing but it hasn’t stopped them from comparing it to a tax code either.
For whatever reason, the official website for House Republicans tried comparing The Legend of Zelda to the American tax code. Inaccurate statements were listed such as the Legend of Zelda being Nintendo’s best-selling video game franchise. It also claimed that Nintendo was founded in 1985.
Heres a good list of what they wrote here.
“The Legend of Zelda series is Nintendo’s best-selling video game franchise enjoyed by more than two generations of gamers. The action-adventure game was released in 1986, only one year after Nintendo’s founding in 1985.
And you know what else was released in 1986? Yeah, you do. The last major reform to the American tax code was signed into law in 1986.
It’s been 31 years, and our current code is far beyond repair.
House Republicans have been working for years on bold ideas to overhaul our nation’s broken tax code. Now, with the Trump administration, the House, and the Senate working together, we’re on track to take up tax reform in the fall.”
