California Reinvestment Coalition Denounces Proposed Federal Budget

Published March 17, 2017 12:40

Paulina Gonzalez, executive director of the California Reinvestment Coalition, released this statement in reaction to the "skinny budget" released by the president yesterday:

"It’s been said that budgets are a reflection of priorities- but this budget represents a U-turn from the values that were espoused on the campaign trail about standing up for Main Street families. Instead, the president has proposed to defund programs that serve the elderly, working families, communities of color, renters, first-time homebuyers, and small business owners throughout California. Meals for seniors, housing for families, loans for small businesses, and access to legal services are all at risk under this proposed budget. The California Reinvestment Coalition will oppose this attack on working families and we will work with our Congressional delegation to also oppose this harmful budget.”
