DCCC Chairman Steve Israel’s Statement on Paul Ryan’s Comments on Face The Nation
On Face the Nation this morning, Congressman Paul Ryan claimed that Washington Republicans are a “big tent” party, when in fact their reckless agenda has driven out the few moderates left in the party.
“Paul Ryan and this Republican Congress have a tent, but it’s got a ‘No Moderates Allowed’ sign hanging over the door. The few moderates they had are fleeing this Republican Congress because they’re sick of trying to defend their indefensible priorities that put their special interest backers ahead of the American middle class. The upcoming Republican budget will be their latest attempt to force seniors to pay more for their health care while protecting billions in taxpayer subsidies for Big Oil.”
