Chairman Steve Israel Statement on the Passage of the Republican Budget
DCCC Chairman Steve Israel released the following statement today on the passage of the Republican budget:
“Instead of solutions, the American people just got more of the same from this Republican Congress. Republicans again put ideology ahead of solutions and results.
“Today, House Republicans tripled down on an extreme, ideological budget that ends the Medicare guarantee while protecting tax breaks for corporate special interests and slashes critical research, development and job training initiatives that create jobs and allow us to compete.
“Paul Ryan and the rest of the Republican Congress are ignoring the results of the 2012 election, when Americans told us they want serious solutions for the problems our country faces. Democrats are offering a solutions-based budget that takes a balanced approach, is fair to the middle class and focuses on the right priorities.”
