Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson released the following statement after passage of the Republican Budget for Fiscal Year 2014.
"The Ryan-Republican budget does nothing to address the needs of the American people. Families all across this country are depending on us to work together to both create jobs and reduce the deficit. House Republicans have consistently refused to address the top priorities of the middle class, and they continue to produce these same failed policies that are not moving the country forward. The American people deserve better. Our budget needs to reflect the ideals and values of all American families and I will only support a plan that does just that."
The House passed the Ryan-Republican budget by a vote of 221-207. For the third year in a row, all House Democrats voted against the Ryan-Republican budget.
