WHAT FLORIDIANS NEED TO KNOW: Val Demings Voted for the Crazy People’s Budget

Val Demings voted for and supported the Congressional Progressive Caucus’ “People’s Budget,” which included the largest tax hike in U.S. history. 

In supporting Crazy People’s Budget, Demings voted to: 

  • Raise taxes by $8.2 trillion – nearly $65,000 per household
  • Add a $10.25 per barrel tax on oil, which would significantly raise prices at the gas pump.
  • Funding to sanctuary cities.
  • Cut defense spending by nearly $1 trillion.
  • Create a public option for health insurance which would set us down the path to single-payer healthcare.

Demings was also an original co-sponsor of the THRIVE Agenda, a $9.5 trillion increase in spending over ten years on wasteful green energy projects.
