When this proposal to reduce welfare benefits is brought up for debate, we are sure to hear claims by the liberal Congressmen that the bill will be detrimental to poor people. These politicians fail to understand, however, that budget reductions are accompanied by tax cuts—so everyone will have more money to spend, not less.

Which of the following, if true, would undermine the author’s position?

(A) Poor people tend to vote for liberal politicians who promise to raise welfare benefits.

(B) Politicians often make campaign promises that they do not fulfill.

(C) Poor people pay little or no taxes, so a tax cut would be of little advantage to them.

(D) Any tax advantage enjoyed by the poor will not be offset by cuts in services.

(E) Budget reductions, when accompanied by tax cuts, often stimulate economic growth.

C)Poor people pay little or no taxes, so a tax cut would be of little advantage to them
- statement indirectly shows that poor people will be benefited if welfare benefits are reduced because they wont pay as much tax they pay now.However, if sentence C is correct, this will undermine the statement above as they wont be benefited from tax reduction policy.

Answer is C
Politician states that benefits would be enjoyed by poor people as there will be the reduction in taxes
C states that people pay no or little taxes hence they won't be benefited at all from tax cut
