Beatty Blasts Trump FY2018 Budget Request

WASHINGTON, D.C. President Donald Trump released his Fiscal Year 2018 Budget Request today that seeks to slash discretionary spending by $54 billion. Reacting to the proposal, U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) said:

“President Trump has talked a lot about being the ‘People’s President,’ yet his budget request literally rips food, housing, environmental protections, jobs and opportunity from countless American families, seniors, people with disabilities and our most vulnerable citizens. The federal budget is a statement of our nation’s values and priorities, and President Trump has made it abundantly clear that his personal quest for military might will be balanced on the backs of those who cannot bear the brunt of these heartless cuts. The Trump budget proposal will not make America great.”
