Statement from CDP Chair Eric C. Bauman on House GOP Budget Vote

Los Angeles – California Democratic Party Chair Eric C. Bauman released the following statement in reaction to news that all 14 California Republican Members of Congress voted for the Paul Ryan/Donald Trump budget blueprint, which includes a hidden tax hike on Californians:

“In voting for the Donald Trump/Paul Ryan budget bill, every member of the CAGOP 14 voted to raise taxes on middle class and poor workers in Orange County, the Central Valley and all across California, just so they could give a huge tax cut to their billionaire paymasters and to appease Donald Trump.

All 14 of them voted to take healthcare away from cancer patients and raise taxes on the rest of us, which they will turn around and hand to their ultra-rich patrons. Darrell Issa, Dana Rohrabacher, Jeff Denham, David Valadao and the rest of their cronies are not just failing to do their jobs — they’re actively sticking it to millions of their own constituents, and hurting real people in the process. The people of California will not fall for this deceptive tax hike and the California Democratic Party intends to make sure every voter remembers this in 2018.”
