Reid: Republicans Care More About Tax Breaks For Millionaires Than Protecting Our Seniors

Washington, D.C. — Nevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement today after Senate Republicans blocked passage of a cost-of-living increase for Social Security recipients:
“Republicans let seniors in Nevada and across the nation see what their priorities are today. By blocking a simple cost-of-living increase for Social Security recipients, Republicans showed they care more about giving tax breaks to millionaires and CEOs who ship American jobs overseas than making sure seniors can keep up with the rising cost of gas and groceries.”
