President’s Budget Won’t Help Hardworking Americans

WASHINGTON, DC – House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) today issued the following statement upon the release of the President’s budget proposal for Fiscal Year 2015:

“The President’s lame-duck budget expands the size of government on the backs of hardworking Americans. Too many middle-class families are living paycheck to paycheck. Too many moms and dads are struggling to make ends meet. And too many young people are still unable to find jobs. A budget that increases taxes, spending and debt will only make life harder for every American. They need real solutions to help them – not the federal government – take home more of their pay.”
