Tonko took time at the school to answer questions about the president's planned tax cuts. He says borrowing money to cut taxes for the upper echelon will not work. He says it's been done before unsuccessfully.

“Something this large needs to be discussed for perhaps a period of a month where everybody sheds light on to the topic,” Tonko said. “It can't be done in veiled secrecy and again it shouldn't be done by borrowing our way there.”

North Country Rep. Elise Stefanik and Rep. John Faso of Columbia County also voted against the president's plan.
