Democrats Blast Republican Budget for Assault on Middle Class

Democrats nationwide are blasting Republican incumbents and challengers for passing a budget that provides tax breaks for the ultra-wealthy on the backs of middle class families, seniors and students. While vulnerable Republicans scramble to justify their budget that sells out the middle class in favor of stacking the deck for their special-interest backers, Democrats are standing behind the middle class - demonstrating their commitment to creating jobs and the economic well-being of all Americans – not just millionaires and billionaires.
