Star Tribune: Republicans’ budget plan means nothing good for you
The current congressional budget debate has become much more than an argument about numbers. If we enact the policies contained in the Republican budget blueprint that passed both the U.S. House and Senate last month, it will take a long-term toll on our economy and on the future well-being of millions of Minnesotans and other Americans.
The Republican budget, which passed without a single Democratic vote, would shrink opportunities for middle-class families and those striving to get into the middle class. It would continue many of the same policies responsible for three decades of rising economic inequality.
