    I can’t believe how consistently you vote with Republicans—you voted NAY on the Progressive Caucus Budget—will you vote AYE on the economy KILLING Ryan budget?—Ryan’s budget is cruel, deceptive and slashes the safety net—and his budget math is full of holes. The Congressional Progressive Caucus, Back to Work Budget,is a detailed plan to create nearly 7 million jobs while bringing down the deficit by $4.4 trillion over a decade. And it does this the right way with higher taxes on the wealthiest (including a 49 percent rate on incomes over a billion dollars); a financial transaction tax that would discourage reckless speculation; an end to tax advantages for outsourcers & corporate jets; an environmental saving carbon tax; a public option for health insurance better than Obamacare; sensible military cuts; & investment in infrastructure, school construction, child care, & putting teachers & firefighters back to work. WHY would you vote against it???
