Tillis FLIPS Again – Supports Budget Threatening Cuts to Medicare, Military Spending

Raleigh – North Carolina Democratic Party spokesman Robert Howard released the following statement after Senator Thom Tillis flip flopped (NO voteYES vote) on a budget plan that would “result in much larger cuts that would threaten entitlements like Medicare and tear into agencies from the Pentagon and CIA to the National Institutes of Health”:

“Senator Tillis is so terrified of his primary challenge, he again caved to pressure from the right, flipping to support a budget that threatened to irresponsibly gut programs like Medicare and our national defense. Senator Tillis’ spineless flip flop is par for the course for a Washington politician who consistently puts his political career before the interests and needs of North Carolina, even when it means North Carolina families are left to pick up the pieces.”
