U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter (CO-07) released the following statement in response to the Republican Budget Conference Report:

“I didn’t think the Republican budget could get any worse but it has.  After weeks of closed-door negotiations, the Republicans have emerged with a Budget Conference Report that includes $5 trillion in cuts to fundamental programs important to Coloradans and Americans. Programs such as Medicare will no longer exist in its current form along with other programs to help hardworking families buy a house, pay for college, and save for retirement.  The Republicans in the House and Senate have opted to ram through a budget which jeopardizes our kids and grandchildren’s future and chips away at a bright future for our country. With the economy growing stronger every day, we need a budget that invests in our future and continues the positive momentum in Colorado and our nation.”
