This Friday marks the six-month anniversary of the signing of the GOP-led Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, a tax reform package that Jacky Rosen remains staunchly opposed to even though it is creating more jobs and putting more money back in the pockets of thousands of hard-working Nevadans. In fact, thanks to the historic tax cuts, the labor market has added more than a million jobs since the legislation’s passage, far outpacing job growth during the same period in 2017. For the first time in 20 years there are more job openings than workers looking for jobs.
