DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz on the House GOP Budget
Washington, DC – In response to the newly released budget by Congressional Republicans, please see the below quote from the Chair of the Democratic National Committee, Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz:
“Today’s House GOP budget may have a new cover page, but it still includes all of the same worn-out, top-down economic policies that have failed America’s middle class families time after time. With each ‘new’ budget, Republicans in Congress remind us they only want to pad the wallets of millionaires and billionaires, repeal the Affordable Care Act taking us back to a broken health care system, and end Medicare as we know it, hurting our seniors. So as Congressional Republicans continue to push their backwards economic plan, Democrats will continue to fight to create more opportunity for America’s working families and to build an economy that supports our growing middle class, not the wealthy few.
“Republicans’ presidential hopefuls have already made clear that they are right in step with the backwards priorities of this House GOP budget – supporting tax cuts for the wealthy at everyone else’s expense, and I call on them to say exactly where they stand on the GOP budget that will hurt seniors and working families, and move us backwards to the failed policies of the past.”
