Washington, DC, Apr. 2, 2014 – Marian Wright Edelman, president of the Children’s Defense Fund, released the statement below in advance of the mark up of the 2015 federal budget proposal introduced by House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan.
“Chairman Ryan’s budget is more about politics than policy. More about giving to the rich and taking from the poor. It chooses corporations over children. It offends all notions of fair play and turns the prophets and gospels on their heads. America’s children deserve more. It should be soundly rejected.”
