After reneging on the bipartisan budget agreement, House Republicans drive America closer to the brink of shutdown with demands for cruel cuts

WASHINGTON, DC — Today, Pennsylvania Congressman Brendan F. Boyle, Ranking Member of the House Budget Committee, released the following statement after House Budget Committee Republicans released the text of an FY2024 budget resolution ahead of a markup to be held on Wednesday, September 20, 2023:


“MAGA Republicans are driving our nation towards a costly government shutdown because they want to make cruel cuts to everything from health care to education, and this MAGA Budget doubles down on their extreme cuts,” said Ranking Member Boyle. “Make no mistake: America is barreling towards a government shutdown because Republicans reneged on the bipartisan budget agreement in their thirst for cruel budget cuts – cuts which will raise the cost of living when it’s already too high.”


“House Republicans haven’t done a thing to lower the cost of living or make life better for the American people because they are consumed by petty infighting and obsessed with an extreme MAGA agenda. Democrats will fight back against these cruel cuts, we will fight back against these extreme budget ideas, and we will always fight to invest in the American people.”
