Cicilline Statement on Trump’s Latest Attack on Working People

Tuesday, May 8, 2018

WASHINGTON – House Democratic Policy and Communications Committee (DPCC) Co-Chair David N. Cicilline (RI-01) issued the following statement on the White House’s efforts to eliminate more than $15 billion in federal funding that was previously approved by Congress – more than half of which would come from the Affordable Care Act and the Children’s Health Insurance Program:

“The President wants working people and kids to pay for the massive tax cuts he just gave to corporate special interests and the wealthiest Americans. Sadly, this is just the latest example of the raw deal Republicans are forcing on the middle class. I’m going to continue fighting to get Rhode Islanders A Better Deal with Better Jobs, Better Wages, and a Better Future.”
