Crist Says Trump Budget Would Benefit the ‘Very Wealthy’
U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist reacted to the release Wednesday (April 26) of President Donald Trump’s proposed budget.
WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist, D-St. Petersburg, criticized a budget proposal as potentially saddling future generations with trillions in debt.
Crist made his remarks in the wake of a release by President Donald Trump of his first budget. The proposal includes reductions in personal and business income taxes and an overhaul of the tax code that critics say would benefit the very wealthy and large corporations. Here is Crist’s statement:
“The president’s proposal cuts taxes for corporations and the very wealthy while increasing the national debt by an astronomical amount. While I support middle class tax cuts and agree we need both a simpler tax code and a business tax rate that is more competitive with our global competitors, we can’t afford to saddle future generations with trillions in new debt. I view this proposal as an opening bid in a broader conversation about reforming our nation’s tax policies and welcome the debate.”
Crist represents Florida’s 13th Congressional District, which includes south and mid-Pinellas County.
