WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congresswoman Lois Frankel (FL-21) issued the following statement after voting against the Republican budget proposal, which paves the way for the Billionaires-First tax plan:

“Republicans just passed a budget that sells out seniors, children, veterans, and hard-working families to give a windfall of tax cuts to Trump’s billionaire and millionaire cronies. This disastrous tax plan is a bad deal that will raise taxes on the middle-class, ransack Medicare and Medicaid, explode our deficit, and gut job-creating investments. We’ve seen this before – trickledown economics only work to help the wealthy at the expense of everyone else. Democrats have a Better Deal, one that protects seniors, assists with the rising costs of family care, and retirement, and invests in infrastructure, research, and education.”
