Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C.  (Feb. 12, 2018) – On Monday, February 12, Congressman David Price (D-NC), Ranking Member on the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Subcommittee, released the following statement after the Trump Administration released its FY19 budget.

“After blowing up our nation’s debt with a $1.5 trillion tax cut for the wealthy, the Trump administration is determined to further undermine our nation’s middle class and stifle upward mobility – this time by attempting to gut critical economic investments, Medicare and Medicaid, and other human capital programs to pay for a foolhardy $18 billion border wall that the American public continues to oppose. Our nation’s budget is a moral document, and the Trump budget is further evidence of a morally bankrupt Administration.”
