Congresswoman Beatty Addresses the Ryan Budget
Congressman Ryan’s budget is not a Path to Prosperity for our country.
Because we lose with jobs. His (10-year) budget destroys 2 million American Jobs according to the Economic Policy Institute…
We lose with families and children.
Because, families and children who have income below 200,000 would have to face a tax increase averaging more than $3,000 a year.
We lose with Seniors.
As the AARP has stated…. The GOP budget will shift costs to seniors and end the Medicare guarantee.
Removing the Medicare guarantee of affordable healthcare coverage seniors have contributed to through a lifetime of hard is work definitely is not the answer.
Mr. Speaker, the American path to prosperity is not for citizens to lose as we do under the Ryan budget but to move forward as set forth in the Democratic alternatives.
Thank you, I yield back.
