Congresswoman Chellie Pingree says Ryan budget 'more of the same bad ideas'
Congresswoman Chellie Pingree, a member of the House Appropriations Committee, issued the following statement after Republican leaders in the House issued their proposed budget for the next fiscal year.
"The Ryan budget is more of the same bad ideas that the Republicans in the House have tried to push through time and time again. Their budget cuts Medicare, slashes spending on programs that help working families and provides more tax cuts for the rich."
"For the 35th time, the Republicans are pushing to repeal health care reform. We had a vigorous and full debate and then Congress passed the bill, the President signed it and the Supreme Court upheld it. It's a complete waste of time to keep trying to undo the law when we have far moreimportant problems we should be dealing with."
