LOS ANGELES - Los Angeles County Democratic Party (LACDP) Chair and California Democratic Party Vice Chair Eric C. Bauman released the following statement regarding the Ryan GOP budget proposal:
“Less than four months after the American people spoke and chose President Obama’s agenda over the Romney-Ryan Tea Party agenda, Rep. Paul Ryan today has introduced a budget that once again seeks to slash domestic spending, turn Medicare into vouchers, gut Medicaid, and repeal Obamacare.
“Rep. Ryan: the American people have had enough of your obstruction, distortion, and rightwing cynical approach to governance. The overwhelming vote of the American people last November should have made you realize that your agenda is out-of-touch with America.
“Even after sitting down with the President last week, you are still playing to those who wish to paralyze our government and end support for the frailest and most at-risk in our society.
“You should be ashamed to look your constituents in the eyes. It is time to cease this game playing, stop resetting the goal posts, and get on with moving our nation forward.”
