Fighting to Improve Our Nation's Budget
In February, the President presented Congress with his proposed budget for the new year.
I am deeply concerned about the impact his proposal will have on San Diego and Imperial Counties and across the nation. The President's budget grossly short changes vital programs for veterans, education, health care, the environment, community development, agriculture, and affordable housing. Yet, the budget barely dents the record deficit created by multiple tax cuts for the wealthy and the war in Iraq.
The President's priorities are wrong for the 51st Congressional District and wrong for America! As your voice in Washington, you can count on me to fight for a sound budget that provides equity for all and serves the needs of our community.
