Press Release

(WASHINGTON, DC) Today, Rep. Grace F. Napolitano (D-El Monte) voted no on H.J.Res. 2, the Republican Balanced Budget constitutional amendment, which is designed to force painful cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security, issuing the following statement: 

“The Tax Scam was just that; a scam. Now Republicans are trying to make up for it by cutting every program that helps America’s working families. Their phony balanced budget amendment would destroy Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security and take away from other critical services millions rely on daily. It is downright shameful House Republicans are trying to balance the budget on the backs of hardworking people, demanding seniors to sacrifice their retirement security to pay for the Republicans’ reckless spending. We must keep the promises we have made to our seniors and veterans, create good-paying jobs, and reduce deficits in a responsible and sustainable manner. I stand with working families in my district and firmly reject this latest Republican scam.”
