Critz: Republican Budget is Disastrous for Economy, Middle Class Families, and Seniors


Date: March 29, 2012
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Mark S. Critz (PA-12) released the following statement today following passage of the House Republican budget for Fiscal Year 2013:

"Today, House Republicans passed another budget that destroys jobs and ends the Medicare guarantee for our nation's seniors -- all the while giving tax breaks to millionaires and billionaires. Republicans are cleverly disguising this budget as what's best for the country, when the truth is this budget is disastrous for our nation's economy, middle class families and our seniors."

Earlier this month, Congressman Critz testified to the House Budget Committee to urge the committee to "put politics aside and protect our promise to seniors, veterans and working families."
