Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Linda Sánchez (CA-38), Vice Chair of the House Democratic Caucus and a member of the House Ways and Means Committee, released the following statement on House passed Republican budget:

“The Republican budget sets our country down a path that will only exacerbate the economic inequality that plagues our nation. Too many Americans are working harder for stagnant wages wages. And instead of helping hard working Americans, the Republican budget proposes massive tax cuts to the wealthy while cutting important programs that are vital to middle class families. Their budget makes detrimental cuts to Medicare and Medicaid, and slashes investments in our future. That’s not a ‘better way.’

“Alternatively, Democrats have laid out a clear alternative in our budget helps grow our economy from the middle. Our vision for the future of this country is one where everyone has the opportunity to succeed through hard work. We want to move our country forward through investments in education, infrastructure, medical research, and workforce training. House Democrats will continue to work to keep the promises of our Better Deal for America.”
