Rehberg On The Republican Budget Plan

photo taken by Shande

The Republican plan for fiscal year 2012, crafted primarily by Wisconsin Representative Paul Ryan, would cut $6.2 trillion over the next decade, in part by reducing spending to pre-2008 levels, and lower the top income tax rate from 35  to 25  percent. The most controversial element is a plan, starting in 2022, to convert medicare to a system in which the government would provide subsidies for individuals to buy private insurance. The battle over Medicare will likely extend through next year’s presidential election. Democrats accuse republicans of seeking to end the health care program to continue tax breaks for the wealthy. Congressman Denny Rehberg explains why he voted against the plan.

 Congressman Rehberg says we need a budget that provides tax relief for working families, assistance for the unemployed, fiscal discipline and policies that will help Montana’s small businesses.
