Dear Senator Toomey:And I will be posting whatever response I get from him or his office.
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.
