House Republicans' Budget Irresponsible, Leaves the Middle Class Behind

I am the strongest Democrat in this race. I will fight to protect middle class values in Congress.

Last night House Republicans passed an irresponsible budget that leaves the middle class behind, further proof that this extreme Republican 131015_Salem_Commuter_Rail_1.jpgCongress just doesn't get it.

We need leaders in Congress who will fight to protect the promises we've made to Medicare and Social Security. Leaders who will work to give every kid, regardless of zip code, a great education. And leaders who will protect women's rights and ensure equal pay for equal work. This Republican budget protects the wealthiest few, while leaving the rest of us behind.

I am the strongest Democrat in this race. I will fight to protect middle class values in Congress.
