“In California—the eighth largest economy in the world—we put our fiscal house in order by investing in core priorities instead of giving tax breaks to the ultra-wealthy.  I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to set national budget policy that raises the wages of the middle class; protects Medicare and Social Security, and invests in infrastructure, education, and innovation.”
