Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer released the following statement on President Donald Trump’s budget proposal:
“The President’s proposed budget cuts are devastating to the middle class. Once again the Trump administration is showing its true colors: talk like a populist but govern like a special interests zealot. This budget shifts the burden off of the wealthy and special interests and puts it squarely on the backs of the middle class and those struggling to get there.
“The very programs that most help the middle class are those that get clobbered the hardest: investments in infrastructure, education, scientific research that leads to cures for diseases all take big hits.
“Democrats in Congress will emphatically oppose these cuts and urge our Republican colleagues to reject them as well.”
