Yarmuth Statement on CBO Analysis of Trump’s 2019 Budget

May 24, 2018

Washington, D.C. – Today Kentucky Congressman John Yarmuth, Ranking Member of the House Budget Committee, issued the following statement on the Congressional Budget Office’s analysis of President Trump’s 2019 budget.

“The CBO confirmed today that the Trump budget would make drastic cuts to programs that millions of Americans rely on, while the Republican tax breaks for millionaires and corporations send our deficit soaring. With the evidence continuing to prove that the tax scam’s benefits are not reaching hardworking Americans, we cannot afford a budget that abandons their needs and priorities. It is incumbent upon Congress to reject the President’s irresponsible proposal, adhere to the bipartisan budget deal, and provide the critical investments in our families and our nation’s future.”
