Today, U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) is issuing a statement on Senate Republicans’ infrastructure proposal:

“The decision by Senate Republicans to completely cut the funding for home and community-based services that is in the American Jobs Plan is a slap in the face to older adults and people with disabilities. It’s also an insult to the workers who provide home and community-based services. Under the American Jobs Plan, these workers would see their incomes grow and our Nation would see jobs created. Senate Republicans need to go back to the drawing board and present a real offer. I won’t be a part of any scheme that sells out our seniors and those with disabilities who have suffered disproportionately during the pandemic.”
