STATEMENT: Rep. Khanna, 'GOP Budget Places Corporations over Working Families'
Washington, DC – Rep. Ro Khanna (CA-17) issued the following statement in advance of tomorrow’s markup by the House Budget Committee of the House GOP’s FY 2018 budget resolution:
"Once again, House Republicans think the best policy solution is giving a massive tax cut to the wealthy while leaving working families left to fend for themselves. First it was with health care, now it’s with the entire federal budget. The draft GOP budget resolution is an extreme case of putting special interests first.
"Instead of strengthening programs that help people get back on their feet, ensure regulation of the financial industry, and improve benefits for workers, the GOP is placing more than $200 billion of this funding on the chopping block. All to hopefully introduce an unfair tax reform plan.
"A budget should reflect the values of our nation, and I will work with my colleagues on the Budget Committee to make sure the version that goes to the House floor does just that."
