Rubio Opposes Massive Tax Increases, Job Losses & Debt Spending In Senate Democrat Budget

Plan would kill 850K jobs, slash household incomes by $1,512 per year

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement regarding his vote early this morning opposing final passage of the Senate Democrat budget, which calls for up to $1.5 trillion in tax increases and piling on $7.3 trillion in debt over the next decade:

“After four years of hiding their true priorities, early this morning Senate Democrats made them very clear - tax increases and debt spending. They passed a radical tax and spend budget without any concern for what these things do to the middle class.

“The Senate Democrat budget is so extreme and reckless that four Democrats who happen to be up for re-election voted against it. Our people deserve a serious plan to grow our economy and slow Washington’s debt spending.”
