Yarmuth Statement on the President’s Budget Blueprint

Mar 16, 2017
“The Trump budget may lack all the details, but the extreme impact it will have on American families and the U.S. economy is abundantly clear”

Washington, D.C.—Kentucky Congressman John Yarmuth, Ranking Member of the House Budget Committee, issued the following statement on the Trump administration’s FY18 budget blueprint, also known as the “skinny” budget: 
 
“The Trump budget may lack all the details, but the extreme impact it will have on American families and the U.S. economy is abundantly clear.  Cutting $54 billion from important American priorities that are already underfunded is short-sighted and irresponsible. This budget will leave us without the economic and educational investments needed to help families succeed, the resources to protect public health and our environment, and the diplomatic support to keep our country safe.”
