AFP Disappointed in Rubio Tax Remarks

May 1, 2018 by AFP

Americans for Prosperity today expressed disappointment following recent comments made by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fl.) regarding the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

AFP Chief Government Affairs Officer Brent Gardner issued the following statement:

“It’s disappointing to see Marco Rubio echo some of the false rhetoric of tax reform opponents, and we hope he clarifies his remarks. Before tax reform, America had one of the highest corporate tax rates in the world, and it was driving businesses overseas. Now, America is a top destination for jobs and investment, more than 400 companies have invested directly in their workforce as a result, and millions of Americans are already seeing benefits like higher wages, bonuses, more take home pay and more job opportunities. There’s no doubt that the full potential of tax reform will be realized over the long-term, but there’s also no denying the positive impact it’s already having on American workers, businesses and families across the country.”
