Ricketts Attends CPAC to Talk Tax Reform While Broad Coalition Says His Plan Will Not Solve Real Problems

Ricketts Attends CPAC to Talk Tax Reform While Broad Coalition Says His Plan Will Not Solve Real Problems
“Gov. Ricketts can speak at fancy fundraisers and right-wing conferences about his tax-reform yet back home a coalition of groups ranging from the Farm Bureau to the Nebraska Corn Growers and the Greater Nebraska Schools Association are all speaking with one voice that Ricketts’ plan does not meet the needs of our students in public school and property owners. Gov. Ricketts speaks right after the NRA, a corporate gun manufacturing lobby arm, giving them political cover at a time when gun violence remains a critical issue facing Omaha. Voters sent him to Lincoln, our state’s capitol, to meet the needs of Nebraskans and to reform taxes that help families. Instead we got a Governor who flies to baseball games, fundraisers and right-wing conferences leaving the hard work of tax reform to our State Senators, farmers and school superintendents.
