Murphy’s tax vote coming back to haunt her
Does Rep. Stephanie Murphy still believe that Florida businesses and middle-class families will not see any “meaningful” relief from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act?
If so, she better not read the news coming out of Florida today:
“Florida Power & Light said Tuesday that savings from the federal tax overhaul will allow it to avoid billing customers for the $1.3 billion cost of restoring electricity after Hurricane Irma.” – Jim Saunders, The News Service of Florida.
In addition to FPL, don’t forget that Darden Restaurants Inc., headquartered in Orlando, announced it will “boost employee perks” because of pro-growth tax reform.
By these accounts, it doesn’t appear Rep. Murphy’s press statement against the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is aging well…
“It appears that Rep. Stephanie Murphy’s vote against the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is coming back to haunt her. In less than a month since enactment, Florida’s hardworking families and workers are already experiencing the benefits of pro-growth tax reform.” – Courtney Alexander, Congressional Leadership Fund spokeswoman
