Majority of House Democrats back the Congressional Progressive Caucus’ People’s Budget


The Daily Kos has the article Majority of House Democrats back the Congressional Progressive Caucus’ People’s Budget.

The article has the link to the roll call vote.  My representative Richard Neal voted no. So here is the question for him.

96 House Democrats—a majority—voted “yes” on the People’s Budget, why were you one of the 86 House Democrats to vote against it? As your constituent, I would like an explanation.

I was upset that the People’s budget paid homage to the Republican myth that the deficit must be reduced.  The only two methods that the myth recognizes is either cutting spending in other areas to offset increased spending in the areas of the people’s budget, or raise tax revenues.

If promulgation of this myth was your reason for voting against the people’s budget, I could understand that.

Who would like to attend the Sturbridge Democratic Town Committee brunch honoring Rep. Neal to ask this question?  The date of the brunch is April 12th at 11AM.  It will be at the Publick House in Sturbridge.
