Reid: Democrats’ Budget Reflects Priorities Of The American People

Washington, DC—Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid made the following statement today after the U.S. Senate passed the Democratic budget:

“In this time of economic uncertainty, this fiscally responsible budget points our economy in the right direction once again by cutting taxes for the middle class and creating good-paying jobs here in America.  We are also making health care, college tuition and energy more affordable and reversing years of Bush Republicans’ failed fiscal policies.  Since President Bush took office, it has been harder each day for middle-class families to make ends meet; this budget will help, and will give more working Americans a real opportunity to succeed in the future.”
