Chief national correspondent for Fox News Ed Henry reminded Democrats of the hefty price they’ll pay for not supporting President Donald Trump’s tax cut plan, Friday on “Fox & Friends.”

“[Pelosi] was talking about the tax cut. It is going to be Armageddon. People are going to die. She said that before the crumbs comment. And that was when the tax cut was at 20 or 30 percent positive in the polls,” Henry said. “What she and Chuck Schumer are confronting now is that it’s flipped, big time. It’s very much in the green for President Trump. The economy is doing well, number one, and number two, these polls, there are endangered House Democrats and endangered Senate Democrats are looking at these polls saying, ‘This tax cut is popular, and not one Democrat in either chamber voted for it.'”

Henry said Democrats should’ve allowed some of their vulnerable members to vote yes on the tax bill but believes they were blinded by opposition and couldn’t see the big picture.

“After it is clear the president’s going to win, you say, ‘okay, it is going to pass anyway. You four, five, Democrats, in tough races — vote yes. It doesn’t matter, it is going to pass anyway.’ But they were so determined to resist that they would not release these folks,” Henry concluded. “These are not just states that Trump carried like a Missouri, a Montana, West Virginia by two or three points. Many, much of these states Donald Trump carried by double digits, and so he’s going to be going to those states in the midterms. And that’s going to be a big problem.”
