Jefferson City, MO – Earlier today, the final bill that both the Senate and House will vote on was released by the conference committee. Sen. McCaskill voted against the Senate version of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, an unpopular decision in the Show Me State. With another opportunity to vote for comprehensive tax reform to unrig the economy, Americans for Prosperity (AFP) – Missouri has released a statement urging Sen. McCaskill to reconsider her position.
“Like many Missourians, we’re disappointed, but not surprised, Sen. McCaskill chose to vote against a tax reform bill that makes American companies more competitive and offers relief to Missouri families,” said AFP-Missouri State Director Jeremy Cady. “The Senate’s action earlier this month was not the final word, next weeks Senate vote on the conference bill will provide an opportunity for Sen. McCaskill to right her wrong. Tax reform will greatly benefit Missouri, plain and simple and she should get on board.” Cady continued, “Sen. McCaskill has always said she’s willing to work across the aisle and be bipartisan. Now is her chance to be a leader and represent Missouri, not her party.”
