Issue Position: Tax Reform
We need real tax reform--but not at the expense of hard-working families. The Republican tax plan passed in 2017 raised taxes on millions of middle-class families and eliminated critical deductions, all to give wealthy corporations and billionaires a handout. This plan added $1.9 trillion to our country's debt, and now Republicans want to pay for it by cutting Social Security and Medicare.
As I talk with families in South Florida, what I hear over and over again is that they're struggling to make ends meet. The cost of living keeps rising, but wages aren't keeping up. We don't need more tax breaks for billionaires, or for corporations that ship jobs overseas. We need a tax system that helps small businesses and hard-working people get ahead.
