Date: April 26, 2017

Congressman Charlie Crist (D-St. Petersburg) released the following statement regarding the tax plan outlined by the Trump Administration today:

"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."
