Schumer Statement On The Trump Administration’s Budget Proposal

Washington, D.C.— Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer today released the following statement regarding the Trump administration’s budget proposal:

“With his latest budget proposal, it’s hard to imagine that President Trump could do any more to double-cross the very American workers and middle-class families he promised to help just last week in his State of the Union address. As typical, President Trump’s budget shows his State of the Union address was lie upon lie to the American people.

“By proposing severe cuts to Medicaid and Medicare, President Trump’s latest budget is simply a continuation of his war to rip away health care from millions of Americans, including people with pre-existing conditions.”
