The House Republicans unveiled their new tax plan, and in it, they weirdly enough name-dropped Steph Curry.
The plan included a passage detailing Republicans’ plans for the individual wage income, and they mentioned Curry by name:
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act includes specific safeguards to prevent tax avoidance and help ensure taxpayers of all income levels play by the rules under this new fairer, simpler tax system. Our legislation will ensure this much-needed tax relief goes to the local job creators it’s designed to help by distinguishing between the individual wage income of NBA All-Star Stephen Curry and the pass-through business income of Steve’s Bike Shop.

Curry saw the name drop and took to Twitter with an amazing comeback: “I wonder if Steve’s Bike shop is hiring…”

President Donald Trump (and by extension, the Republicans) has been taking shots at Curry ever since the NBA star refused to visit the White House, but Curry has continued to handle the political mud-swinging with the class we’ve come to expect from him.
Don’t mess with Steph Curry.
