ICYMI: Rubio Supported Extreme Budget Plan That Could Cut Programs Florida Depends On

Last week, Marco Rubio voted to support Senator Rand Paul’s radical Five Penny Plan, which would gut our federal budget, mandating “enormous cuts to practically every aspect of federal operations,” and putting defense, education, FEMA, and Medicare in jeopardy.

“Instead of voting for a budget plan that will lower health care costs and ensure no Floridian making under $400,000 will pay more taxes, Rubio decided to support an extreme budget proposal that could make dramatic cuts to Medicare, emergency management programs, and national security efforts,” said Florida Democratic Party spokesperson Grant Fox. “Once again, Rubio has shown he is not looking out for Floridians and their best interests and in 2022, voters will hold him accountable.”

Senator Rand Paul’s Five Penny budget plan would impose “austerity measures that would both hurt millions of American families” and undermine our economy. Read more on the budget below:
