Linda Sánchez on Ryan Budget: “Republicans need to wake up to reality” (April 10, 2014)
Washington, DC- Today Rep. Linda Sánchez (CA-38) released the following statement after she cast her vote against the misguided and irresponsible Republican FY 2015 budget:
“This budget is balanced on the backs of seniors, working class Americans, and our children,” said Rep. Sanchez. “It offers more of the same Republican policy agenda- provides exceptions for wealthy special interests at the expense of everyone else.
We cannot move our country forward by cutting infrastructure investments, gutting education programs like Pell Grants and Head Start, and ending Medicare as we know it. The Ryan budget does all of the above. It is irresponsible and a disservice to the American people.
I remain committed to fighting for policies that will grow our economy and benefit working class families across this country. I hope my Republican colleagues wake up to reality and begin to do the same.”
