Yarmuth Statement on Passage of GOP’s 2018 Budget Resolution

Oct 5, 2017

Washington, D.C. – Kentucky Congressman John Yarmuth, Ranking Member of the House Budget Committee, issued the following statement on House passage of the Republican FY 2018 Budget Resolution:
“By voting for this shockingly extreme budget proposal, House Republicans have said loud and clear that they care more about giving giant tax breaks to the wealthy and big corporations than supporting our families or growing our economy. This budget makes deep cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and nearly every investment in our future, all so millionaires can walk away with a $230,000 tax cut. I can’t justify that – and I have no idea how my Republican colleagues do.”
