Corey, Murphy’s GOP Opponent, Praises GOP Tax Bill

Matt Corey, who wants to replace Chris Murphy in the U.S. Senate, is praising the GOP tax bill, unlike his Democratic opponent.

One GOP opponent to Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), who is up for re-election in 2018, is praising the GOP tax bill that passed Congress this week and that Murphy voted against.

Matt Corey, a Navy Veteran and small business owner, said the bill “will allow middle-class Americans to keep and spend more of their hard-earned money.”

“The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will allow middle-class Americans to keep and spend more of their hard-earned money, it will help spur our economy to grow more, and it will create more U.S. jobs.”

“Our businesses will also benefit from a long-over due lower tax rate that is finally competitive with businesses abroad, along with the opportunity for faster expensing of capital investments. This will enable our businesses to increase investments and compete more effectively.”

This is in stark contrast to Murphy’s response to the GOP bill. Murphy said Democrats “have to” repeal the tax cuts if they take back control of Congress in 2019, and suggested businesses in Connecticut would be just fine if the corporate tax rate was 30 percent instead of 21 percent.

Murphy’s comments from this week are below:
