Van Hollen Statement on Passage of Republican Budget

Apr 10, 2014 Issues: FY15 Republican Budget


Washington, DC – Today Maryland Congressman Chris Van Hollen, Ranking Member of the House Budget Committee, issued the following statement on passage of the Republican budget:

“With today’s vote, House Republicans have unequivocally declared their agenda – rigging the rules for wealthy special interests at the expense of everyone else.  To fund additional tax breaks for the wealthy, the GOP wants to cut jobs, gut funding for education and research, and end the current Medicare guarantee.  Instead of expanding and supporting the middle class, they make the clear choice to dismantle the ladder of opportunity – it is a deeply pessimistic view of our nation.  American families deserve and demand better.”
