Liberal Rep Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) On GOP’s ‘Path To Poverty’ Budget: It’s ‘Like A Tornado Through Nursing Homes’

(By Matt Schneider, Mediaite) - Democratic Congresswoman and soon to be new chair of the Democratic National Committee Debbie Wasserman Schultz is getting fired up about the budget battle and answering the call from some who wondered where is the passion from the Democrats. Wasserman Schultz called the Republican budget full of “reckless and shameful cuts” and didn’t stop there.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz: “I can tell you that this budget would be devastating for seniors and older Americans. This Republican path to poverty passes like a tornado through America’s nursing homes, where millions of America’s seniors receive long-term and end of life care. . . . Under this budget plan, Republicans are trying to back out of our commitment to our seniors. We cannot go back on our promise to the greatest generation. The Republican path to poverty does just that.”
