Tomorrow Vice President Pence is returning to Florida to fundraise for the National Republican Congressional Committee in Sarasota and speak to the right-wing group, Club for Growth in West Palm Beach. In response, FDP Chair Terrie Rizzo released the following statement:
“Pence is coming to Florida to peddle Trump’s economy to the only people who are actually benefiting from it: those at the top. Trump has been such an ineffective president that his biggest accomplishment in office has been giving billionaires a massive tax cut, while breaking countless promises to the middle class and the poor.”
PROMISE: “I’m Going To Massively Lower Your Taxes. That’s Businesses and That’s Middle Income. That’s Everybody.” [Trump Campaign Rally, Fort Meyers, FL, 9/19/16]
REALITY: Trump’s tax scam will hike taxes on 3.6 million middle-class Floridians.
REALITY: In 2020, The Richest 5% Of Florida Taxpayers Will Receive 61% Of The State’s Share Of Tax Cuts Under The Republican Tax Bill. [Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy, 8/28/19]
