Yarmuth Statement on GOP’s 2018 Budget Resolution Coming to House Floor Next Week

Sep 28, 2017

Washington, D.C. – Kentucky Congressman John Yarmuth, Ranking Member of the House Budget Committee, issued the following statement on the announcement that the GOP’s FY18 Budget Resolution will come to the House floor next week for a vote:
 
“It appears House Republicans are finally bringing their shockingly extreme budget to the floor for the sole purpose of fast tracking huge tax breaks for millionaires and wealthy corporations.  It includes massive cuts that threaten our economic progress and our national security, and it willfully ignores the needs of the American people.  The irresponsible tax cuts in this plan will increase our deficits by trillions of dollars, and lead to even more severe cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, nutrition assistance, and other critical programs. House Democrats will fight this budget and the destructive priorities it represents.”
