Gaetz responds: No ‘Oops’ here

Congressman Matt Gaetz responded on Twitter:

Rick – No “oops” here. I acknowledge this. We need to close the loophole permanently and make it law. Proof here:”

His communications director, Kavontae Smalls, followed up with this statement:

“Though the NFL voluntarily relinquished their tax exempt status in 2015, the NHL, PGA, and LPGA remain tax exempt. There is nothing that prevents the NFL from reclaiming its status. My legislation would end this loophole and generate over $150 million in new revenue over 10 years, according to 2016 estimates.”
