Congressional hopeful Kathy Hochul likes what she sees in the just-approved federal budget compromise in the House of Representatives.

“It is only fair to ask would they have supported a budget compromise that kept essential services going or would they have supported a massive shutdown that would have delayed essential services to our veterans, our troops, our business owners, our students, our seniors, and to the American taxpayers? The lack of interest and care by Jane Corwin and Jack Davis has been disheartening and I hope they finally join my lead and support this budget compromise that will cut waste and get our economy moving forward.”

Hochul, who is competing against Republican Assemblywoman Jane Corwin and independent Jack Davis, linked the compromise to what she said was her early support of the agreement that averted a federal government shutdown last week.

“From early on, I called for this compromise and challenged both Jane Corwin and Jack Davis to follow my lead. Today – six days later – neither candidate has yet to say a word,” she said.
