The President’s budget for 2018 clearly shows the Administration is not working on behalf of everyday Americans. It presents a long list of broken promises to the American people, united by one theme: taking away hope and opportunity from millions of families while showering millionaires, billionaires, and wealthy corporations with unnecessary tax cuts.
The opening remarks of Kentucky Congressman John Yarmuth, Ranking Member of the House Budget Committee, at today’s hearing on the Trump administration’s 2018 budget request as prepared
“President Trump’s budget is shockingly extreme and the antithesis of what the American people have said they want from their government."
The Trump administration will release its full budget this upcoming Tuesday, May 23, and all indications are that it will expand on the cruel and irresponsible budget blueprint from March, breaking even more of the President’s promises to the American people.
