In response to the House of Representatives voting on a balanced budget amendment, Protect Our Care Campaign Director Brad Woodhouse released the following statement:

“During the same week that the Congressional Budget Office found that the GOP’s Trump Tax will blow a trillion-dollar hole in the budget, Congressional Republicans have decided that fiscal prudence is of the utmost importance? Give me a break. By offering a proposal that would most likely mean devastating cuts in Medicare and Medicaid, Republicans are making their priorities clear: to pay for tax cuts for the wealthy and big corporations, they want to put the health security of millions of seniors, children, and people with disabilities on the chopping block. It is useless to pretend this vote is anything other than another salvo in their relentless war on health care. Thankfully, it will be going nowhere.”
