Jefferson City, MO – Americans for Prosperity (AFP) – Missouri released a statement following the Senate’s approval to pass the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and send it to the President’s desk for his signature. This bill will deliver tax relief to the middle class and small business, make American companies more competitive globally, and remove many special interest carve-outs and loopholes. Missouri’s senior Senator Roy Blunt voted to approve the bill while Sen. McCaskill voted against the bill.
“Our activists and Missourians throughout the state are thrilled Congress has delivered on this once-in-a-generation opportunity to deliver meaningful tax reform that will grow our local businesses and deliver tax relief to hard-working Missouri families,” said AFP-Missouri State Director Jeremy Cady. “Tax reform has been our top priority all year, and we’re thrilled the President will be able to sign this before Christmas. We applaud leaders in Congress and the Trump White House for their commitment to get tax reform done this year. Sen. Blunt has played a pivotal role championing this legislation and has made Missourians proud.”
“Unfortunately, Sen. McCaskill couldn’t overlook partisan politics and put her constituents first,” Cady continued. “It’s disappointing considering the Senator had previously expressed a willingness to work with congressional leaders and President Trump. We will hold her accountable for her voting record, including her vote against this historic tax package.”
