Democrat Staffers Got Pay Increases Because of GOP Tax Reform

According to a study by the Las Vegas Review Journal, staffers for Rep. Jacky Rosen’s (D-NV) Senate campaign saw a large increase in take-home pay following President Trump’s signing of the GOP tax law.

Rosen criticized the law in February and stood by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s comparison of the tax benefits to “crumbs.” She claimed that companies would “hoard” the windfalls from the bill.

But the Review Journal’s examination of FEC reports found that many of the Democrat’s own staffers saw their pay rise by hundreds, even thousands, of dollars:

Rosen’s highest-paid employee is campaign manager Daniel Kazin. From Oct. 1 to Jan. 31, his bimonthly paycheck was $5,353. Starting Feb. 15, his paycheck jumped to $5,555. That’s a 3.8 percent increase worth more than $4,800 a year.

Helen Smith saw the highest pay boost by percentage. Her check went from $2,222 to $2,313, a 4.1 percent increase. That increased her net pay by more than $2,100 a year.

Even Rosen’s lowest-paid employee, August McGinnity-Wake, saw benefits. His paycheck jumped from $1,077 to $1,093, a 1.5 percent increase. That’s worth $384 a year.

Rosen’s opponent, Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV), voted to pass the law that gave her staffers raises. Maybe they should find a new boss.
