Side-By-Side: While Republicans Want to Raise Taxes on More Than 40% of Floridians, Democrats Push to Lower Costs

While Republicans are already on defense over their agenda of hiking taxes on more than 40% of Floridians and raising healthcare premiums for millions, they will also have to spend this April recess explaining their record of voting against measures to lower costs for Americans.  

Over the past two weeks, Republicans in Congress have voted against bills that would lower the cost of insulin, which as many as 2.1 million Floridians rely on, and help as many as 5,736 Florida restaurants and businesses who didn’t receive the first round of Restaurant Revitalization Fund relief cover costs. 

House Democrats, on the other hand, overwhelmingly voted in favor of bills to cap the monthly cost of insulin at $35 and get much needed relief to local businesses. And President Biden has proposed a plan to increase taxes on billionaires, not working families and seniors. 

See for yourself how Democrats and Republicans’ agendas stack up against each other:
