Clay Says Trump’s Budget is a Toxic Prescription That Would Make America Weaker, Not Stronger

March 17, 2017
Press Release
STATEMENT BY CONGRESSMAN. WM. LACY CLAY (D) MISSOURI REGARDING PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP’S PROPOSED FY2018 BUDGET

-WASHINGTON, DC

Note:  The following, in its entirety, is all first-person from Congressman Wm. Lacy Clay (D) Missouri

“A budget is a reflection of our values and our priorities. The President is picking winners and losers; and it’s painfully clear that seniors, women, young people, minorities and the rural poor would lose a great deal.  That includes millions of voters who supported him.  Mr. Trump’s dangerous and damaging budget plan would also starve life-saving research efforts to find cures that could save millions of lives, while he provides tax breaks for billionaires.  The Trump budget will also endanger federal efforts to clean up nuclear waste and to safeguard pure water and clean air.  Just like his healthcare bill, the Trump budget is a toxic prescription that would make America weaker, not stronger.”
