Rep. Pete Aguilar Fights for Seniors, Students, and Inland Empire Jobs

Rep. Pete Aguilar (CA-31) released the following statement on his vote against the Republican House budget:

“Today, I voted against the House Republican Budget because it dismantles Medicare and slashes funding for California students, while cutting taxes for corporations and the wealthiest of Americans. Instead of leveling the playing field for the middle class, this budget would force Inland Empire families, students, and seniors to pay more, while asking multi-millionaires and special interests to pay less.”

“Instead, I supported an alternative budget, which makes college more affordable, strengthens Medicare, and invests in small businesses and cutting-edge research to grow the economy and create 21st Century jobs in San Bernardino County.”

“Inland Empire families are already struggling to keep up with the rising costs of everyday living expenses. The last thing Congress should be doing is making the cost of a college education or a retirement even more expensive and further out of reach.”
