Moulton Response to Trump Budget Proposal
May 23rd, 2017
“A Slap in the Face to Working Families Everywhere”
Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Seth Moulton (D-MA), a member of the House Budget Committee, released the following statement in response to President Trump’s proposed budget:
“President Trump’s budget is a slap in the face to working families everywhere and a complete rejection of our core American values. Nothing in this budget begins to solve America’s problems. We need policies that help grow the economy to create good-paying jobs and ensure that all Americans have the opportunity to thrive in the new economy.
“Instead of making it harder to access quality education, we should be investing in our children’s future. Instead of putting our troops in further danger by slashing diplomacy, we should be focused on an actual military strategy. And, instead of turning our back on the middle class, we should be ensuring that the programs they depend on are still available to provide a pathway to opportunity.
“It’s time for Democrats and Republicans to come together to confront our nation’s challenges.”
