Comment Of Senator Patrick Leahy On The Adoption of The Budget Conference Report

“A budget is about setting priorities, and the Republican budget passed today places the rich over the poor, the powerful over the more vulnerable, and corporations over hardworking families. The real responsibility will lie when Congress exercises its power of the purse to fund programs to which Republicans have proposed devastatingly drastic cuts.  I will be fighting to ensure those programs the new Senate Majority is intent on attacking are protected.  Vermonters deserve a government that is working to help them, and one that ensures they have the opportunity to share in the promise of a growing economy.”
