Beloved “Wheel of Fortune” host Pat Sajak, a rare conservative in liberal Tinseltown, shared a simple “reminder” to those on the left who are up in arms over lower taxes, which the U.S. Senate approved in a bill early Saturday morning.
“Reminder to all,” he tweeted Saturday evening. “Tax rates are merely legal minimums. You are free to send as much as you’d like.”

Sajak’s tweet was a direct message to liberal lawmakers complaining about the reform plan, which lowers the corporate tax rate and nullifies Obamacare’s individual mandate penalties:

Does anyone think this is how the United States Senate should be changing our entire tax code? Last minute, hand written edits on a bill that was just released on a Friday night?
Me neither. https://t.co/PzKOUyjdr5

I was just handed a 479-page tax bill a few hours before the vote. One page literally has hand scribbled policy changes on it that can’t be read. This is Washington, D.C. at its worst. Montanans deserve so much better. pic.twitter.com/q6lTpXoXS0

Okay this is absurd. One page of the new #GOPTaxPlan is crossed out with an ex. Another page is just a line. Is that a crossout? Is this page part of the bill?

Sajak’s tweet quickly garnered support from fellow social media users:
I am challenging every lib to protest @POTUS tax bill by donating their extra cash, and any investment gains to charity. If they hate @POTUS so much they shouldn’t accept any benefit due to him. Pls retweet this thought and let’s see if we can get the libs to put up or shut up!

Can I retweet this one thousand tweets times? https://t.co/M5R7OHAduR

Sweeping tax reform was one of President Donald Trump’s long-held campaign promises.
