Clark statement on bipartisan budget deal

Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Katherine Clark released the following statement on the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015:

“Today’s bipartisan budget agreement is an overdue victory for families at home and should be a wake-up call for Congress. Kowtowing to a small group of radicals on the far right has only led to endless crises, a government shutdown, a historic downgrade of America’s credit rating, and the distinction of being the least productive Congress in modern history. This Congress and the incoming Speaker of the House need to make today’s example of listening to the needs of families at home the rule, not the exception.”
