Luján Statement on President Trump’s FY2020 Budget Request

U.S. House Assistant Speaker Ben Ray Luján (D-NM) issued the following statement after President Trump released his budget for Fiscal Year 2020:

“This budget is one of the most morally bankrupt proposals that has come from the Trump White House. It takes a slash-and-burn approach to nearly every program that uplifts working families and will leave our country weak, sick, and hungry. Instead of investing in health care, infrastructure, or education, it props up a system of corporate welfare that has driven our country deeper into debt.

“This is not a responsible vision for the country. It’s a craven, political document that shows how extensively President Trump has abandoned the American people.”
