Release: Sanders Calls Republican Budget Cuts Hypocritical

WASHINGTON, Feb. 25 – Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), a member of the Senate Budget Committee, issued the following statement today on negotiations to keep the government running past March 4:

“At a time when this nation already has the most unequal distribution of income at any time since 1928, and after Republicans just passed huge tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires, it is hypocritical that they now want to balance the budget by cutting desperately-needed programs for hard-working Americans. Democrats must fight back and say no to continued attacks on working families.”
