I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul

Garren Shipley - April 16, 2018

Today we learned why Jennifer Wexton is so vehemently opposed to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act — she has no idea what it is or what it does.  I wouldn’t usually share an entire Democrat email at one time, but this one…. hoo boy, it’s a keeper. 

Email

Let’s break this travesty down, shall we?
 
Tax returns filed tomorrow will be filed under the old code. The first returns under the new law (the ones with lower tax rates, and twice the standard deduction) won’t be filed until January 2019. If you’re going to complain about a law, you should probably know what it actually does. 
 
And as to the impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act on the 10th District? I’ll let Senator Wexton’s hometown paper handle that one. From the Loudoun Times Mirror:

"Loudoun County homeowners are expected to benefit from the new tax plan out of Washington, according to the county's lobbying firm."

"The Ferguson Group, a bipartisan government relations consulting firm, analyzed the potential impacts to Loudoun residents based on several scenarios and came back with estimates as to how the new law affects a range of people living in Loudoun County. The analysis did not include the impact on business owners or businesses."

Add in the laundry list of companies giving higher wages, bonuses, and better benefits, and the impact of the tax law looks nothing like Senator Wexton’s less-than-accurate email.
 
As you cover Senator Wexton’s failure to grasp tax law, please consider the follow quote from me, with apologies to Adam Sandler:
 
"Senator Wexton, what you just emailed is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever read. At no point in your rambling, incoherent fundraising ask were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the 10th District is now dumber for having read it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.” — Garren Shipley, RNC spokesman
