Mar 5, 2008
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC—Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL), a member of the House Budget Committee, issued the following statement about the Democrat FY09 Budget Proposal:

“It comes as no surprise that the Democratic budget is nothing more than a massive tax increase and a burden on America’s hard-working families,” said Diaz-Balart.  “The budget brings with it a $683 billion tax hike and proves yet again that Democratic leadership is committed to raising taxes.  Congress should be committed to helping America’s hard-working families not burdening them with tax increases,” said Diaz-Balart.  

What’s in the budget for America’s families?

A $2,100 tax increase for a family of four earning $50,000 a year
A $3,000 tax increase for 48 million married couples
More than a $1,000 tax increase for 12 million single mothers
A $2,000 tax increase for 18 million seniors
A $4,000 tax increase for 27 million small business owners
