SEIU’s Mary Kay Henry on ‘Plan B’ Failure

WASHINGTON, DC –(ENEWSPF)–December 21, 2012. After the House of Representatives failed to pass Speaker Boenher’s “Plan B,” budget proposal yesterday, Mary Kay Henry, President of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), issued the following statement:

“Tonight, House Republicans showed their true colors. First they voted to slash funding for Medicaid, child care, and other vital services. Then they refused to ask even the wealthiest Americans to pay their fair share. House Republicans are willing to allow middle class taxes to increase in order to protect tax breaks for millionaires. All Americans should stand together and hold these Members of Congress accountable.”
