For some reason, the official website for House Republicans tried comparing The Legend of Zelda to the American tax code. However, it ended up publishing some inaccurate comments on Nintendo’s long-running action-adventure series. For example, it said The Legend of Zelda is Nintendo’s best-selling video game franchise. It also claimed that Nintendo was founded in 1985. A few excerpts from the article – titled “What Do the The Legend of Zelda and the American Tax Code Have In Common?” – can be read below:
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.
