The U.S. Senate is debating its budget and the U.S. Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon is voicing his priorities.

 

Wyden took to the Senate floor Tuesday to say he supports investing more in the middle class and not repealing the Affordable Care Act.

 

"If you repeal the Affordable Care Act, America goes back to the days when healthcare was for the healthy and wealthy.  There will be pre existing conditions again and that's fine if you're healthy or wealhty, but that's not most Americans.  There are many ways to improve the Affordable Care Act, but that's not what the other side does."

 

Wyden says a budget that slashes Medicaid, increases middle class taxes and makes college less accessible -- is on the wrong path.
