The Middle Class

While our economy is showing signs of recovery due to President Obama’s leadership, these remain challenging times for middle class families.

Many are still without work, struggling to make ends meet. Yet as these families work hard to get back on their feet, the Republican Congress is working to pull the rug out from under them by threatening damaging cuts to important programs like Social Security and Medicaid and increasing their taxes while giving the wealthy a pass.

As your Congresswoman, I will fight back against the Republicans’ assault on the middle class and work to protect the social safety net that was put in place to help hardworking families in tough times. We cannot allow Congress to make dangerous budget cuts at the expense of the families that can least afford it.
