Senator Bernie Sanders Statement on Budget Proposal for FY 2016

BURLINGTON, Vt.–(ENEWSPF)–February 2 – Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee, today issued the following statement about President Obama’s proposed budget for fiscal year 2016:

“The president’s budget begins to move us in the right direction. By rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure, we can create millions of good-paying jobs. By making community college free, we can finally provide affordable access to higher education for working-class families.  By ending outrageous corporate loopholes, and by providing tax breaks to the middle class, we can begin the process of addressing the obscene levels of income and wealth inequality we are experiencing.  Clearly, the president’s budget is just a start, but it is a good start.  I look forward to working with my colleagues on the committee and in the Senate on a budget that helps the middle class, and not just the top 1 percent.”
