Moeller Falsely Claims, “House Passes Budget – Senate Does Not Act”

by lewwaters

Moeller, Right To MoneyRepresentative Jim Moeller (D. Portland/Vancouver) sent out his usual spin the truth email this evening titled House Passes Budget – Senate Does Not Act laying all blame for a budget agreement not being reached on Republicans, as usual.

In the email, Moeller claims,

“Majority elected House Democrats have advanced substantial steps toward middle, compromise ground in striving for agreement with Senate Republicans.”

“I stand for our House budget that puts children-in-need before tax breaks, that maintains strong funding for our schools, and that preserves a stable foundation supporting basic human services while addressing our immediate needs.”
