No tax bill debate for Mississippi’s GOP congressmen

WASHINGTON – As negotiations on a final tax-cut package continue on Capitol Hill, Mississippi’s Republican congressmen say they are backing the proposal because they think it will turbocharge the state’s economy and make businesses more competitive.

In interviews with Mississippi Today on Capitol Hill, the Republican members were on the same accord that legislation – now facing final revisions after separate versions passed the House and Senate – will help individuals by providing an average $1,200 tax refund, simplify the federal tax code and help Mississippi corporations create more jobs.

The state’s only Democrat serving in Congress, Rep. Bennie Thompson, voted against the House tax bill and expressed strong views against the bill after Senate passage.
