WASHINGTON, DC – Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) Members released the following statement in response to the Republican budget proposal for FY 2015:

“This year’s Republican Budget leaves hardworking American families out in the cold. It cuts taxes for the wealthiest Americans and pays for it by gutting the social safety net. The Republican budget dismantles the Medicare guarantee, block grants and deeply cuts Medicaid and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. It more than doubles sequester cuts to non-defense discretionary spending, and severely harms programs that keep America competitive around the world in areas such as education, job training, domestic manufacturing, advanced research and development, and infrastructure. This budget would also devastate our economic recovery.

“The Congressional Black Caucus strongly opposes the draconian Ryan proposal and will offer an alternative plan that reflects the priorities of our nation. The CBC budget will reduce the deficit and alleviate the harm inflicted by Republican austerity measures in a responsible and fiscally sound manner. The CBC budget will emphasize our long-standing commitment to eradicating poverty in America by increasing economic opportunities through robust investments in education, infrastructure, affordable housing, domestic manufacturing, small businesses, advanced research and development, and job training. In addition, the CBC Budget will protect and strengthen the social safety net, which continues to keep millions of families from sinking deeper into poverty.”
