Congresswoman Beatty Statement on House Democratic Budget

Leveling the playing field for hardworking families

WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) released the following statement on the House Democratic budget alternative:

“This week, House Democrats released a fiscally responsible budget that works for hardworking families by making it easier to own a home, easier to send children to college, and easier to have a secure and enjoyable retirement. Budgets are statements of values and priorities. The Democratic alternative budget embodies our Democratic values—that American families should have the opportunities and tools they need to achieve economic security today and in the future.

“The House Democratic budget stands in stark contrast to the GOP proposal released last week that clearly demonstrates that the fractured and disarrayed Republican leadership is intent on pursuing an agenda that does nothing to help American workers, hurts families, all the while failing even to close tax loopholes. The GOP budget means Americans work harder to get less.”

“I certainly hope that Republican leadership will work on striking a sensible improvement to the misguided budget they put forward and work with Democrats to pass a budget that would ensure a level playing field and allow all Americans to thrive.”
