Faso votes against tax cut plan

Oct 26, 2017 12:08 pm
Rep. John Faso (R-Kinderhook) voted against the Republican tax cut framework Oct. 26 that passed narrowly. Faso voted against the plan with several other New York Republicans who have voiced disapproval for the proposal to eliminate deductions for state and local taxes. That would mean a large tax increase for New Yorkers. The proposal would also create large tax cuts for the very rich. The vote, which needed 215 votes and got 216, means the tax cut proposal only needs 51 votes in the Senate, rather than 60, making it much easier to pass. The only New York Republicans to vote in favor of the budget resolution were Reps. Chris Collins of western New York and Tom Reed of the Southern Tier. No Democrats voted for the bill.
