CONGRESSMAN VERN BUCHANAN REMAINS STEADFAST IN SUPPORT OF #TAXSCAM2

HE BOUGHT A MULTIMILLION DOLLAR YACHT WITH HIS TAX BREAK FROM THE FIRST TAXSCAM, WHAT WILL HE GET THIS TIME?

SARASOTA — Congressman Vern Buchanan is one of the driving forces behind Congressional Republicans’ efforts to provide even more tax breaks to millionaires, billionaires and wealthy corporations. While Buchanan scored more than $2 million in tax breaks from the first #TaxScam, he stands to make millions more in #TaxScam2 due to changes in pass-through deductions. It’s a complicated move that benefits the rich, as Buchanan knows very well since he authored the bill. Unsurprisingly, the #TaxScam2 is incredibly unpopular.

Grassroots advocacy organization Floridians for a Fair Shake Communications Director Stephen Gaskill issued the following statement on #TaxScam2:

“Congressman Vern Buchanan exemplifies the corruption and greed of Congressional Republicans and the Trump administration. The new tax scam follows the same pattern of the first tax scam, benefiting millionaires and wealthy corporations at the expense of Florida families, by jeopardizing Social Security and Medicare. Despite the overwhelming evidence that the first #TaxScam did not improve the economy or wages for working Floridians, Vern Buchanan is still pushing ahead with his support for #TaxScam2. The economy must look entirely different from the deck of a new yacht.”
