Tom Perez on House Republicans’ Partisan Passage of Budget Bill
DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement after House Republicans passed a budget bill without any Democratic support:
“This budget may be great for members of Mar-a-Lago, but it’s a raw deal for Main Street. It’s just a way to fast-track a massive tax giveaway to wealthy corporations and the top 1% at the expense of hardworking families, and it guts funding for critical education and health care programs, including more than a trillion dollars from Medicare and Medicaid. Donald Trump, Mike Pence, and Republicans in Congress have betrayed the middle class so they can help their wealthy friends make a bigger profit.
“But while Republicans serve special interests, Democrats believe that our elected officials are supposed to serve the people they represent. That’s why we will continue fighting for the economic security and opportunity every family deserves.”
