ICYMI: CONGRESSMAN BRIAN MAST IS OK WITH WALMART MAKING BILLIONS FROM TAX BREAKS WHILE YOU GET…NOTHING

Walmart’s annual meeting today is an opportunity to remind Congressman Brian Mast that the company — the largest employer in Florida — is a major benefactor of the tax breaks and giveaways he provided them in the #TrumpTax bill. Here’s what Walmart is getting:

  • Walmart pockets nearly $2 billion from the tax bill. Walmart grabbed over $400 million in savings in the first quarter of 2018 alone over what it would have paid.
  • Walmart’s CEO Doug McMilion’s pay package increases nearly half a million to $22.8 million — 1,118 times the median salary of a Walmart worker.

Here’s what Floridians are getting:

  • — 0 — Zero, zilch, nada. The bottom 60% of Floridians receive $360 in 2019, but if Congress extends the #TrumpTax that number drops to zero.

Thanks, Congressman Mast! “Save money, live better?” Maybe if you’re already a millionaire, billionaire, or rich corporation. If you’re the average Floridian, you get…nothing.
