Over the weekend, multimillionaire Senate candidate Jacky Rosen called for the full repeal of the tax reform law that is already having a positive impact on middle class workers in Nevada.
In addition to increasing the take-home pay of middle class Nevada families by an average of $2,106, the tax reform bill is spurring local private sector investment:
- South Point Casino in Las Vegas recently announced that it will give “more than $1 million in bonuses for 2017 to its employees,” in addition to not increasing health care costs.
- A developer will move forward with a multi-billion investment into a Las Vegas resort that will create 11,000 jobs.
- Walmart announced it is raising its starting wage to $11, expanding maternity and parental leave benefits, and providing $1,000 cash bonuses. (The company has over 14,000 employees in Nevada.)
Steven Law, president and chief executive officer of Senate Leadership Fund, had this to say about Rosen, who is worth between $5.3 million and $16.7 million: “Millionaire Jacky Rosen is saying to Nevada families, ‘Let them eat cake,’ when she talks about repealing the middle class tax cuts that are helping them and creating good jobs.”
