Yarmuth Statement on President Trump’s Budget

May 23, 2017

Washington, D.C.—Today Kentucky Congressman John Yarmuth, Ranking Member of the House Budget Committee, released the following statement on President Trump’s 2018 budget request:
“President Trump’s budget is shockingly extreme and the antithesis of what the American people have said they want from their government. It leaves no question of what this administration values: greater gains for millionaires, corporations and special interests, at the expense of American families, economic progress and our national security.  It savagely cuts health care and nutrition assistance for families with nowhere else to turn, and relies on absurd economic projections and pretend revenues that no credible economist would validate.  This budget does not reflect the values of the American people and should be resoundingly rejected.”
