IBT’s Sirota: Trump, GOP Senators Stand to Benefit from Tax Bill
TAPPER: "We specifically looked at Republican senators who could make money off a provision that could benefit real estate companies among others. You came up with a pretty extensive list."
SIROTA: "Yeah, there are about 14 Republican senators, that’s about a quarter of the Senate Republican conference that have investments in LLCs and real estate related investment partnerships in which they stand to make big money off a provision inserted into the bill in the conference committee, a provision that hadn’t been passed in the House or the Senate, that delivers a big tax cut for people who have basically LLCs that don’t employ a lot of people but have a lot of real estate in them. 14 of the Republican senators voting tonight will be voting on a provision that could enrich them personally."
