Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard denounced the Republican budget this week, calling it a "draconian" proposal.
Roybal-Allard's full statement appears below:
"This budget would end Medicare and Medicaid as we know it, and undermine many other programs people rely on everyday to meet their most basic needs. The underlying assumption the Ryan/Republican budget makes is that the rich have too little and the poor have too much. This assumption has resulted in a draconian budget that would shift the burden of deficit reduction onto the middle class and those who can least afford it, while ensuring even greater tax cuts for the wealthiest among us."
