PRICE STATEMENT ON TRUMP BUDGET

March 16, 2017
Press Release

Washington – Congressman David E. Price (NC-04), Ranking Member of the House Appropriations subcommittee responsible for transportation and housing funding, released the following statement on President Trump’s proposed “skinny budget.”

“This isn’t a skinny budget; it’s a starvation budget. President Trump clearly has no intention of fulfilling his campaign promises to rebuild our nation’s infrastructure or provide new opportunities for economic mobility. These radical cuts would make it impossible to make the investments in our future that a great country must make. Ironically, they would also fail to address the main drivers of the deficit – which makes this budget the ultimate lose-lose proposition.”
