Washington, D.C. - Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet today issued the below statement following Senate passage of the Fiscal Year 2018 budget resolution:
"This partisan political stunt is why Coloradans are so frustrated and fed up with Washington. Republican leadership has now cleared the way to cut taxes for the wealthy at the expense of working people. The budget adds $1.5 trillion of debt that our children will have to shoulder-and slashes Medicare and Medicaid to transfer savings to the wealthy. We need bipartisan, fiscally-responsible tax reform to create jobs, boost paychecks, and grow the middle class. This takes us in the opposite direction."
