Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after Republican Senators passed their radical budget without Democratic votes:
“A budget is a statement of values, and this radical budget shows that Republicans will stop at nothing to push through their deficit-exploding, multi-trillion dollar tax breaks for the wealthy.  
“With this extreme budget, Republicans are throwing hard-working Americans under the bus, just to pave the way for their billionaires-only tax scheme.  Same as the House, the Senate GOP Budget wreaks devastation on seniors, children, veterans and working families.  In the name of tax breaks for the wealthiest, Republicans’ budget will hurt Americans at every stage of life and in every corner of the country, destroying middle class jobs, gutting education and job-training initiatives, ransacking Medicare and Medicaid, and still exploding the deficit. 
“While Republicans abandon hard-working Americans to give billion-dollar handouts to their high-end friends, Democrats will fight this devastation with all our strength, and fight to create good-paying jobs and raise wages for all.”
