Rep. Susan Davis: GOP Budget Threatens U.S. Economy and Puts our Nation’s Most Vulnerable at Risk
WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Susan Davis released the following statement on passage of the Republican Budget in the House of Representatives.
“If a budget is supposed to set priorities for our nation, this budget holds the American people in little regard. This budget threatens job creation and the drastic cuts to Medicare and Medicaid would put our nation’s most vulnerable at risk. Such cuts would be devastating to seniors, veterans, and our children.
“It would put a college degree farther out of reach for millions of Americans and divests in the American worker. The budget also neglects our crumbling infrastructure.
“Finally, this budget paves the way for large tax cuts for those who don’t need them, leaving the middle class to foot the bill in the name of $1.5 trillion debt. Is this what hard working families are expecting from their leaders?”
