BOSTON—In response to Gov. Baker’s budget announcement this afternoon, the Massachusetts Democratic Party released the following statement:
“Gov. Baker’s barebones budget reflects his barebones vision for Massachusetts, where little to nothing is done to address major issues like income inequality, transportation infrastructure or maintaining our national leadership in clean energy, life sciences and education,” said MassDems Spokesman Pat Beaudry. “The Governor's barebones approach jeopardizes job growth and hard-earned gains made during the last several years, where investments in education, innovation and infrastructure gave us several No. 1 spots and a global reputation for vision and innovation."
