AFSCME Pres. Lee Saunders’ Statement on the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015

Washington, D.C. — 

AFSCME Pres. Lee Saunders issued the following statement on the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015:

“While not perfect, this budget represents a reasonable compromise. We hope it marks an end of governing by crisis and chaos, including the reckless threat of government shutdowns or default, which needlessly harm the economy and all Americans. There is so much work to be done – roads to be paved, bridges to be repaired, children to be taught – and badly needed investments in vital programs Americans rely on such as Medicare and Social Security.  Working people are looking to their lawmakers to move past partisan gridlock to take action on issues that affect our quality of life.”
