McGovern Calls Trump’s Budget Proposal “Reckless”

Congressman Jim McGovern is bashing President Donald Trump’s budget proposal, calling the proposal “reckless.”

McGovern released the following statement on the proposal on Thursday. 

Read the Statement Below

“President Trump talks about helping America’s forgotten men and women, but his reckless budget does just the opposite. In my 20 years in Congress, I have never seen such a heartless, cruel, and dangerous budget. America has a proud tradition of stepping up to make investments needed to keep us safe, strengthen our economy, and lift up the least among us. President Trump’s budget takes a butcher’s knife to these vital programs and devastates working families across the country.

The President’s budget asks the American people to pay billions for the construction of a border wall while decimating America’s investments in jobs, education, clean energy and lifesaving medical research. President Trump talks about creating jobs, but he is cutting the education and skills training programs that enable our workers to secure the good-paying jobs they need to succeed in today’s economy. The very programs that help middle class families most are those that are hit the hardest.

America has a responsibility to show strong leadership on the world stage. President Trump’s drastic cuts to the State Department and vital diplomacy and humanitarian efforts like the McGovern-Dole international school feeding program is a dangerous step backward that weakens our role as a global leader.

President Trump’s budget shifts the burden off of the wealthy and special interests and puts it on the backs of the middle class and the many hardworking families trying to get there. Cuts to economic development funding for urban and rural areas as well as critical housing programs will weaken our economy and communities. President Trump’s cuts to programs that literally help to feed seniors, women, and children and keep low-income families warm during the winter months is one of the cruelest things I’ve ever seen.

A president’s budget is a message to the American people about what their values are. Today President Trump is declaring that Republicans’ top priority is giving tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans while taking essential services away from everyone else.”
