Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Today, Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) released the following statement on the harmful FY 2018 Budget Resolution that passed the House. Larson voted NO.

“Today, I voted against the Republican’s harmful budget that would set the table for slashing vital programs such as SNAP, Medicaid, and ends the Medicare guarantee, all in order to enact tax cuts for those that need them the least. The Republican budget would provide fast track authority to pass their reckless tax plan that overwhelmingly favors the wealthy on a partisan basis. Instead, I voted for a Democratic alternative that would provide funding for our national defense, our veterans, and would make investments here at home, including a robust infrastructure plan,” said Larson.
