Patriotic Millionaires Slam "Cruel" Senate Budget
"This horrific budget would harm millions of vulnerable Americans"
WASHINGTON - This morning, in response to the Senate's passage of a budget resolution that would cut nearly $1.5 trillion from Medicare and Medicaid and give massive tax breaks to wealthy individuals and corporations, the Chair of the Patriotic Millionaires Morris Pearl, former Managing Director at BlackRock, Inc., released the following statement:
"The budget just passed by the Senate is not only irresponsible, it is downright cruel. This horrific budget would harm millions of vulnerable Americans all to give even more money to the richest among us. The Senators who voted to cut Medicare and Medicaid by a combined $1.5 trillion just to give millionaires like me a tax cut have betrayed their constituents, catering instead to the demands of their wealthy donors. Both the Senators and their donors should be ashamed to trade the future of this nation for their short-term financial self-interest."
