My FIFTY-NINTH Open Letter To Senator Pat Toomey

I'll be dropping this letter to Senator Pat Toomey in the mail today:
Dear Senator Toomey:

Senator, I'd still like to steer clear of the many many scandals tainting this administration, our nation, and your political party and ask you about your most recently enacted tax reform. You said of that reform (before it was enacted) that it "will promote domestic economic growth, create jobs, and raise wages."

However, your Republican colleague, Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, is on record saying that “There is still a lot of thinking on the right that if big corporations are happy, they’re going to take the money they’re saving and reinvest it in American workers. In fact they bought back shares, a few gave out bonuses; there’s no evidence whatsoever that the money’s been massively poured back into the American worker.”

So here's this week's question: Assuming both statements are correct (yours made before and his made after the legislation), what went wrong with your legislation? If it was so important to enact the tax reform in order to create jobs and raise wages and this is not happening, what will you be doing differently in the future to make sure the same mistakes don't recur and (more importantly) to fix the mistakes that Senator Rubio points out?

I await your response.
And I will be posting whatever response I get from him or his office.

To be fair, the tax cut/reform was product of the establishment GOP that Senator Toomey [and his corporate masters] are part of.

Still support the tax cut/reform.
It has the blue states paying their fair share by not allowing the deduction of State income taxes.
So the Feds are not subsidizing the Blue States.
