Which antihypertensives are best for a patient with hypertension AND proteinuria?

Both high blood pressure and proteinuria increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and kidney failure...so the goal is to use an antihypertensive that can lower blood pressure AND reduce proteinuria.

An ACE inhibitor or angiotensin-receptor blocker (ARB) is usually preferred. These lower BP...reduce proteinuria...AND slow progression of kidney disease.
