BAKERSFIELD - Kern County residents protested immigration reform Wednesday morning.
Kern County Democratic Party, Concerned Citizens and others hope to pressure Valadao support a budget that supports social security and Medicare, a strong middle class, and assistance for lower income individuals.
They say House Republicans's budget protects tax breaks for the wealthiest rather than create opportunities for middle-class families.
Valadao responded in a statement:
With unemployment reaching 30% in some communities, the Central Valley has been hit especially hard by our struggling economy. The Republican Budget will make responsible reforms to get our nation's fiscal house in order, creating economic growth and middle-class jobs for our Valley. Furthermore, this prudent budget will protect programs like Medicare and Social Security for those who rely on them most.
