MO Reps Celebrate Bonuses That Resulted From Tax Cuts … Except for McCaskill

On Thursday, Great Southern Bancorp, a Springfield, Missouri-based bank, announced it’s giving $1,000 bonuses to upwards of 1,200 employees, all as a result of tax cuts in the GOP tax bill. The Springfield News-Leader first reported the news.

Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO), who voted for the GOP tax bill, celebrated the news.

“Great Southern Bank’s announcement is further proof that the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is providing immediate benefits for hardworking families and fueling confidence in our country’s economic future.”

So did Rep. Billy Long (R-MO), who also voted for the GOP tax bill.

“It will be very good for the Ozarks,” Long said [to the Springfield News-Leader]. “All I know is that I can’t pump gas, go to a movie or eat in a restaurant without people coming up and thanking me for my hard work on their tax cut.”

Someone who was not celebrating bonuses for over a thousand Missourians? Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO).

McCaskill voted against the bill. The 1,200 employees receiving bonuses from Great Southern Bancorp are on top of thousands of AT&T employees in Missouri receiving a bonus as a result of the tax bill.

McCaskill’s opposition to the tax bill and the benefits it produced is just another reason McCaskill is the ‘most vulnerable Senate Democrat‘ in the 2018 election cycle.
