Yarmuth Statement on CBO’s Analysis of Trump’s Budget

Jul 13, 2017

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 2018 budget.


“The CBO report shows that the President built his budget on fantasy projections. The facts are that Trump’s extreme proposals would severely underinvest in our families and communities, while at the same time give millionaires and corporations massive tax breaks.  I’m deeply concerned by reports that House Republicans—while still mired in internal dysfunction—would follow the President’s lead and prioritize those at the top while ignoring the real challenges American families face every day.”
