Pelosi Statement on Proposed Bipartisan Budget Agreement

Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement tonight after Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Patty Murray and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan unveiled a bipartisan budget agreement:

“Tonight’s agreement represents a step toward enacting a budget for the American people and preventing further manufactured crises that only harm our economy, destroy jobs, and weaken our middle class. 

“I look forward to discussing the details of the agreement with my colleagues in the House Democratic Caucus.  Any budget agreement must ensure that we create jobs, grow the economy, strengthen the middle class, and reduce the deficit in a balanced and responsible way.”
