RNC MEMBERS SPENDING MORE FOR TWO NIGHTS AT TRUMP HOTEL THAN MAJORITY OF FLORIDIANS’ TAX BREAK

WEST PALM BEACH — Floridians for a Fair Shake, the grassroots organization formed to educate constituents about Congressmen Brian Mast’s and Vern Buchanan’s votes on health care and taxes, issued the following statement on the Republican National Committee meeting in Miami. Floridians for a Fair Shake communications director Stephen Gaskill:

“Today, Republicans are gathering in South Florida at the Trump National Hotel in Doral, where the cost to rent a room for two nights is more than the $320 average tax savings 60 percent of Floridians will realize in 2019 under the #TrumpTax plan supported by Brian Mast and Vern Buchanan — even with the group discount.

“As Marco Rubio disclosed this week, the massive tax breaks to billionaires, millionaires and wealthy corporations aren’t benefiting average Floridians. ‘There’s no evidence whatsoever that the money’s been massively poured back into the American worker,’ Rubio said. We appreciate the candor from one Floridian, and hope that Congressmen Mast and Buchanan will have the same epiphany.”
