AFSCME Pres. Lee Saunders on House Passing Final Budget Resolution

WASHINGTON — 

AFSCME Pres. Lee Saunders issued the following statement on the U.S. House of Representatives passing the final 2018 Budget Resolution:

“Any member of Congress who voted to support this budget just signed a permission slip for an onslaught of attacks on America’s seniors, children and working families.

“It is unconscionable to give a penny more to the billionaires and corporations who have rigged the rules to their own benefit at the expense of already underfunded health care, education, infrastructure and other public services. This budget will do real harm to our communities.”
