US Rep Shea-Porter Statement on the House Republican Budget

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Once again, House Republicans released a budget that protects the wealthiest, hurts the middle class and puts our economic recovery at risk. Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter released the following statement today about the Republican budget:

“I’m disappointed that instead of taking this opportunity to work towards a balanced plan to reduce the deficit and create jobs, House Republicans chose more of the same: tax cuts for a wealthy few while asking for more sacrifice from the middle class.

“The Republican budget would turn Medicare into a voucher program – ending guaranteed coverage for future retirees. It would repeal Obamacare, an effort that amounts to little more than political grandstanding. And it would give Americans at the top a new round of tax cuts while asking students, seniors and the middle class to foot the bill. These ideas were debated over the course of the fall election, and they were rejected by Granite State voters.

“If the Republican House majority truly wants to compromise, they need to put forward a compromise budget.”
