Democrat presents GOP budget plan to Rhode Island

Posted: Updated:

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - U.S. Rep. David Cicilline is preparing to meet Rhode Island residents and business owners to discuss how a Republican budget plan endorsed by Congress would affect the state economy and families.

Republican U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan authored the mostly symbolic measure that passed Thursday. It promises a balanced federal ledger in 10 years through sweeping cuts in social spending, including major changes to the health care law.

Cicilline plans to tour a Rhode Island manufacturing business in Smithfield on Monday to discuss how the plan would hit the state economy and manufacturers.

The Democrat will be in Providence on Tuesday and talk about the middle-class tax increase in the GOP budget, and meet with older residents the next day and discuss the plan's effects on Medicare and affordable health care.
