As background, Congressman Ryan’s budget for FY 2014 balances the budget by slashing vital services to low-income families and raising taxes on middle class Americans. It provides tax cuts to millionaires – and destroys 2 million jobs in just one year.
But Senator Murray’s budget provides an alternative by:
Stopping the sequester cuts and replaces them with equal amounts of fair revenues and spending cuts/interest payment reductions;
Creating jobs by investing $100 billion to rebuild needed roads, bridges and schools and provides training for youth and adults; and
Reducing waste in Pentagon spending and reduces the size of the deficit responsibly.
