BOSTON, Aug. 23 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Senator John Kerry released the following statement today on the new Bush overtime regulations:

"Today, 6 million Americans across the country could get a pay cut from this administration. This is only the latest insult to America's middle class who are paying a higher tax burden, while at the same time wages are declining and families are paying skyrocketing costs for health care, energy and college tuition.

"America can do better. When I am president, we will strengthen the middle class by cutting taxes for 98 percent of families, reining in the spiraling cost of health care, protecting overtime and raising the minimum wage."
