WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi issued the following statement on his strong opposition to the Senate Health Care bill:
WASHINGTON – Today, the House of Representatives passed bipartisan legislation to strengthen and improve career and technical education and give Americans the skills they need to compete for in-demand jobs.
Retirement security is a pillar of the American dream. Our seniors have worked hard and deserve to live their golden years in dignity. Now is not the time to turn our backs on them by cutting Social Security and Medicare.
Supporting our veterans, and ensuring they receive the benefits they've earned, will always be one of my top priorities. Our nation prides itself on our sacred obligation to prepare and equip those we send into harm's way, and to care for them when they come home. It is our job in Congress to fulfill this obligation.
The defense and the security of our nation are extremely important to my work in Congress and our country as a whole. America's security impacts every single American and cannot become a partisan issue.
