Blumenthal Statement on Passage of Republican Budget Resolution

[WASHINGTON, DC] – U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) released the following statement today after a Republican-backed budget resolution passed by a vote of 51-49:

“This budget resolution shines a spotlight on Republican leadership’s misplaced, partisan priorities. It’s a plan straight out of the Trump playbook: cutting taxes for the wealthiest while gutting Medicare and Medicaid, abandoning the promises of infrastructure investment, and shifting the tax burden away from corporations and onto the shoulders of working families. We’ve seen this show before, and we know the results. This plan is not comprehensive tax reform—it’s a massive tax cut for the wealthy, including Trump himself.”
