The Democrats are reacting to the GOP agenda that is circulating tonight.
Here is a statement from Nadeam Elshami, a spokesman for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.
“Congressional Republicans are pledging to ship jobs overseas; blow a $700 billion hole in the deficit to give tax cuts to millionaires and billionaires; turn Social Security from a guaranteed benefit into a guaranteed gamble; once again, subject American families to the recklessness of Wall Street; and take away patients’ rights. Republicans want to return to the same failed economic policies that hurt millions of American and threatened our economy.”
“Democrats will protect Social Security, give tax cuts to the middle class and help the middle class through our ‘Make it in America’ manufacturing strategy.”
“Ironically, the Republican Party that voted against small business tax cuts enacted into law by this Congress is actually holding its press event at a small business just outside Washington and then racing back presumably to vote against the Small Business Jobs Act, which is crucial to get small businesses hiring.”
