But Senate Republicans have voted nearly 100% of the time with Trump, and they’ve even voted before to cut these exact same programs. No amount of spin will stop voters from finding out where they stand. Every Republican Senator — and every Republican thinking about running for Senate in 2018 — owns this disastrous budget.”Read more after the jump.
