Jenkins and Morrisey Back Budget That Helps Wealthy, Hurts WV

GOP budget cuts Medicare and hurts the middle class

CHARLESTON, WV— Today, Republicans in Congress voted for a budget that helps their big-money campaign donors and leaves middle-class families in the cold.

With the vote of Congressman Evan Jenkins and the tacit approval of Attorney General Patrick Morrisey, the Republican majority in Congress sold out working families to help large corporations and the super-wealthy.

Jenkins and Morrisey are courting out-of-state donors with big bank accounts and that’s why they’ve teamed up to support a budget that will take from the middle class to pay for a massive giveaway to the wealthy.


“Evan Jenkins and Patrick Morrisey are putting their thumb on the scale to help out the mega-donors they want to finance both of their campaigns, said Belinda Biafore, Chairwoman of the West Virginia Democratic Party. “Jenkins and Morrisey are showing everyone that they will sell out the people of West Virginia to chase big money.”
