Bacon throws fiscal responsibility out the Window
Omaha, NE – Brad Ashford released the following statement about the recent vote by Congressman Don Bacon on the Republican tax plan.
“This vote is not the path forward for Nebraska families,” Ashford said. “It is unconscionable to me what has occurred over this process. Bacon just voted, again, to finance a tax giveaway to the wealthiest amongst us on the backs of working families and to explode our deficit at a time when fiscal responsibility is sorely needed. America could use a strong two fold infusion, targeted tax breaks to the middle class to continue their expansion and investing in our infrastructure to ensure our competitive advantage. We can do this in a deficit neutral fashion and working in a bipartisan manner is how we get there. I will continue to fight for responsible, bipartisan legislation that helps working families and to ensure that we are keeping our fiscal house in order. My opponent has thrown fiscal responsibility out the window and Nebraska families will not forget.”
