Katrina Pierson Reacts to Rand Paul Declaring He’ll Vote For the GOP Tax Bill

Moments ago on “Risk and Return,” Katrina Pierson discussed the current state of the GOP tax bill along with the news Rand Paul will vote for the bill.

Katrina Pierson:

Rand Paul was absolutely right in his approach to the GOP tax bill. It is inconceivable to assume all the senators are going to get 100% of what they want in tax reform but we have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to have tax cuts across the board. Not to mention something else that the Senator wrote in his Op-Ed on Fox News was the simple fact that there are 97 different federal taxes with a code that spans more than 47,000 pages. We have an opportunity now to do right by the American people and get rid of that.


As reported by the WSJ

America First Policies is putting $500,000 behind a five-day burst of local broadcast and cable advertising in Wisconsin, Arizona, North Dakota, West Virginia, Maine and Tennessee. The ad begins airing Monday.

The 30-second spot cuts between footage of Mr. Trump speaking Sept. 27 in Indianapolis and images of families and workers overlaid with the words “opportunity,” “middle class” and “fair.”

“If you demand it, the politicians will listen,” Mr. Trump says in the ad. “Let them know you’re watching.” It concludes with the congressional switchboard number.

The spots are meant to pressure Wisconsin Sens. Ron Johnson (R) and Tammy Baldwin (D), Arizona Sens. John McCain (R) and Jeff Flake (R), North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D), West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin (D), Maine Sen. Susan Collins (R) and Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker (R).
