Trump Budget will have Crushing Impact on All Americans

 
Washington, D.C. – In response to the release of the Trump Administration’s full FY 2018 budget, Congresswoman Gwen Moore (WI-04) released the following statement:
 
“I am utterly aghast by the flagrant contempt for the welfare of working- and middle class Americans exhibited in President Donald Trump’s full FY 2018 budget. The outrageous funding cuts outlined in the president’s budget walk the line between ignorance and indifference while disregarding the needs of seniors, families, and children with disabilities. 
 
“While it is clear that our nation’s most vulnerable will bear the brunt of this vicious proposal, no one – regardless of ideology, socioeconomic background, or political affiliation – will be immune to its devastating impact. With this budget, the president has shifted his war against the poor to a war against the people, aiming his sights on a series of bipartisan initiatives designed to support all Americans and improve the health and economic well-being of our nation.
 
“Our shared fight against cancer and life-threatening diseases will suffer in the face of billion dollar cuts to the National Institutes of Health. Our collective efforts to support America’s rural and urban communities will be hindered as we gut infrastructure projects and eliminate Community Development and Service Block Grants. And our common goal of creating new career opportunities for those who do not have the means to retire will erode as President Trump dismantles critical skills training programs for today’s modern economy. 
 
“As a former welfare recipient, I simply cannot support such a misguided and cruel budget that targets Medicaid, Social Security Disability Insurance, and those trying to escape the chains of poverty. But as Americans, we should all be alarmed by the scope of the damage that will undoubtedly result because of the president’s proposal. I urge both my Democratic colleagues and those across the aisle to forcefully oppose this budget and put the concerns of the people before those of their party.”
