Last week, Monica Wehby endorsed a budget backed by national Republicans called "Cut, cap and balance."

 

Oregon House Majority Leader Val Hoyle, a Democrat from Eugene says this budget would result in across the board cuts to several important government programs.

 

"Monica Wehby's support for cut, cap and balance stands out because it explains how you could afford to give massive tax breaks to milionaires, billionaires and corporations moving jobs overseas.  She would enact a tea party budget that would have massive cuts for social security and medicare."

 

The Center for American Progress say this budget would mean a 25 percent cut to everything in the feeral govenrment, including social security, medicare and medicaid.
