U.S. Rep. Gene Green Statement on the GOP Budget

October 26, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC — Today, Congressman Gene Green (D-TX) released the following statement in opposition to the Republican FY 2018 Budget Resolution:

“The budget resolution that passed today is a clear indication that the Republican majority is more interested in giving tax cuts to the wealthy instead of investing in good-paying jobs, infrastructure, and education for middle-class and low-income families. The devastating budget would cut Medicare and Medicaid by a total of $5 trillion over 10 years, slash investments in education, including money for  the Pell Grant and Head Start program, and cut money for housing assistance and SNAP – all to fast-track a tax plan that’ll increase our country’s deficit by $1.5 trillion. The Republican majority needs to be honest with the American people and admit that their budget and soon-to-be-released tax plan will raise taxes on hard-working families and favor millionaires, billionaires, and corporations.”
