FLORIDIANS FOR A FAIR SHAKE STATEMENT ON CBO REPORT THAT THE FEDERAL DEFICIT WILL TOP $1 TRILLION

WEST PALM BEACH — Floridians For a Fair Shake, the grassroots organization formed to educate constituents about Rep. Brian Mast’s votes on health care and taxes, issued the following statement on the Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) projection that the federal deficit will top $1 trillion. Floridians For a Fair Shake  communications director Stephen Gaskill:

“The federal deficit will soon top $1 trillion, thanks to the massive #TrumpTax cut that was a giveaway to the wealthiest Americans. Floridians in the 18th Congressional District aren’t seeing the benefits of the tax cut, but they will feel the weight of the crushing deficit for the rest of their lives. Rep. Brian Mast is accountable for his vote in support of the tax plan, and for increasing the burden on average Floridians. When coupled with his vote to replace the Affordable Care Act with Trumpcare, it’s apparent Brian Mast isn’t working for the working people of the Treasure Coast.”
