Reid Statement On President Obama’s Forthcoming Budget

Washington, D.C. – Nevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement today regarding President Obama’s forthcoming budget:

“President Obama’s budget will be a powerful statement of Democratic principles. The policies it contains will provide a blueprint for creating jobs for the middle class, forging an economy where economic opportunity is shared by all – not just the top one percent – and protecting retirement security. In particular, I commend President Obama for his commitment to keeping Social Security strong, and for rejecting Republican calls to cut badly-needed cost of living increases.

“The agreement forged by Senator Murray and Congressman Ryan shows that we can find common ground and make progress on these issues. I look forward to working with the administration and colleagues on both sides of the aisle in making this blueprint a reality.”
