Helena, MT -- Montana Democratic Party spokesman Chris Saeger released this statement today in response to Congressman Dennis Rehberg's admission that he has not read the Rep. Paul Ryan's budget:
"Congressman Rehberg is an appropriations subcommittee chairman who says he supports a budget plan, while admitting he hasn't even read it--four days after it was introduced. The controversial budget plan raises the debt and ends Medicare as we know it. Rehberg's blind support for it is irresponsible and lazy, and Montanans deserve better in Congress."
Congressman Rehberg expressed support on Tuesday for the Ryan budget.
