In Washington, the House’s 216-212 passage of a four trillion dollar Republican budget last week appears to pave the way to begin tax reform.
Florida’s 1st District Representative voted with the minority.
“Right now we’ve got $20 trillion in debt; in the next ten years we’re going to $30 trillion in debt unless we cut spending,” said Cong. Matt Gaetz (R-Fort Walton Beach). He’s one of 20 Republicans who joined Democrats in opposing the Senate Amendment to House Con Resolution 71.
Gaetz voted in favor of the original House measure, before its trip to the Senate.
