Breaking yet another barrier, the Congressional Progressive Caucus released a copy of its proposed 2012 budget in Spanish.
The CPC, the liberal faction of Democrats in the House of Representatives, is offering one of five alternate budgets to House Republicans’ main proposal. All of those budgets are scheduled to receive a vote later Friday.
But the CPC’s effort this year, which they titled the “People’s Budget,” is the only one that’s available in a second language. The CPC said releasing the document in Spanish, where the title translates as “Presupuesto del Pueblo,” shows it’s the only budget that is truly representative of the broad scope of the American public.
