Red State Dems Just Voted Against Bonuses for Thousands of Constituents

When Congress passed tax reform on Wednesday, they did so without a single Democratic vote. A 51-48 Senate vote sent the bill to President Trump’s desk, with all Republicans present voting for the measure (Sen. John McCain was absent due to illness).

Almost immediately following the vote, AT&T announced that “due to tax reform passage,” they would grant $1,000 bonuses to their employees and invest $1 billion in American capital:

AT&T’s announcement means that 10 Democratic senators running in Trump states in 2018 voted against $1,000 bonuses for thousands of their constituents.

Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-IN) represents 4,500 AT&T employees. He voted against an extra $4.5 million for his constituents.

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) represents 9,400 AT&T employees. She voted against an extra $9.4 million for her constituents.

Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT) represents 780 AT&T employees. He voted against an extra $780,000 for his constituents.

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) represents 950 AT&T employees. He voted against an extra $950,000 for his constituents.

Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) represents 14,500 AT&T employees. He voted against an extra $14.5 million for his constituents.

Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) represents 190 AT&T employees. She voted against an extra $190,000 for her constituents.

Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) represents 6,000 AT&T employees. He voted against an extra $6 million for his constituents.

Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA) represents 2,200 AT&T employees. He voted against an extra $2.2 million for his constituents.

Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) represents 2,700 AT&T employees. She voted against an extra $2.7 million for her constituents.

Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) represents 7,100 AT&T employees. She voted against an extra $7.1 million for her constituents.

In 2018, these 10 Democrats will have to explain to their constituencies why they voted against giving them a raise.
