(Washington, D.C.) – Rep. Tim Ryan (OH-17) released the following statement in response to the release of President Bush’s budget:

 

“Our values are reflected in our budget priorities and the President has shown that he doesn’t share our values,” said Congressman Tim Ryan. “Clearly, the President doesn’t value healthcare for our grandparents because of the drastic cuts he wants to make in Medicare. Clearly, the President doesn’t value keeping home heating affordable for our working poor because of his drastic cuts to the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program and clearly the President doesn’t value the safety and security of our children because of his cuts to the Community Oriented Policing Services program which would be eliminated completely. I suppose the only values that this President does stand for are ensuring no bid contracts get to his friends and the richest 1% of Americans enjoy tax cuts at the expense of the middle class.”
