Rep. Peters Opposes Partisan Budgets

Press Release
Remains Focused on Job Growth and Economic Opportunity for All

WASHINGTON – Congressman Scott Peters (CA-52) released the following statement after opposing today’s partisan budget proposals:

“All Americans should have the opportunity to earn a living, own a home, put away something for retirement, and pursue their dreams. We need a middle-class prosperity budget that keeps America’s engine revving, creates high-paying jobs, and improves the skills of all Americans who seek them.” 

“Instead of providing the American people with a bipartisan budget that fosters economic growth and creates high-quality jobs here in America, both sides once again presented purely partisan ideas that are not a good faith effort to move our country forward and help hard-working families.

“San Diegans, and Americans across the country, want and deserve a Congress that sits down together and crafts a bipartisan budget that cuts wasteful spending, tackles our long-term debt, keeps our nation secure, preserves a safety net for the most vulnerable, and invests in the programs that keep our country globally competitive. When we fail to put forth a bipartisan proposal that focuses on infrastructure, basic scientific research, and affordable higher education we risk our nation’s status as an economic power.”
