NY Dems Praise Passage of President Obama’s Budget by the House and Senate

NEW YORK, NY – New York State Democratic Committee Chair June O’Neill today issued the following statement praising the passage of President Obama’s budget by the House and the Senate:

“Yesterday, both the House and the Senate passed President Obama’s budget – sending a clear signal that Democrats intend to deliver on the promises that were made in November.

The landmark budget put the focus back on things Americans need most – affordable health care, investments in clean energy that reduce our dependence on foreign oil, and support to help ease the burden of the current economic crisis.

Right here at home, we were the first state to adopt a budget this fiscal year. Like President Obama’s budget, Governor Paterson’s budget makes reforms to our health care systems and creates major savings for taxpayers. It also reflects the Governor’s commitment to fiscal responsibility and government reform.

These two budgets provide for the much needed changes Americans and New Yorkers so desperately need.”
