Lipinski: Republican Budget Creates More Obstacles for Middle Class

Congressman Dan Lipinski (IL-3) released the following statement today:

“Today I opposed a Republican budget that focuses on fast-tracking a partisan tax reform process over pretty much everything else, including children, seniors, veterans, and middle-class Americans in my district and across the country.  

“The GOP budget takes significant funding from important investments in infrastructure, job training, clean energy, and research and development.  It also makes substantial cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and programs that benefit veterans, seniors, children, and our communities. 

“As a former educator, it frustrates me that my colleagues across the aisle support a bill that fails to prioritize our future, cutting education initiatives and making college more expensive for the middle class.  I know we can do better.  Let's work together to give a boost to hard-working families.”
