Press Release

Washington, DC - Today, Dr. Raul Ruiz (D-Palm Desert) voted in favor of the bipartisan budget bill brought before the House of Representatives.

H.R. 1314, the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 is a budget agreement negotiated and agreed to by leaders of both parties.

“I voted for this bipartisan budget because it protects Medicare and Social Security, and it ensures that as a country we pay our bills like we expect American families to pay their bills. Congress must stop playing politics by holding the debt limit over the heads of the American people.”
