WASHINGTON D.C. — U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) issued the following statement regarding President Trump’s reported budget blueprint, which would deliver severe cuts to services that hard-working American families need:

“The budget request President Trump is reportedly proposing would kill any chance to make desperately needed investments in jobs, education and training that the economy needs, while severely hampering our ability to protect the environment and rebuild an aging infrastructure. Trump and Congressional Republicans will meet fierce resistance from Democrats if they try to enact any appropriations law that delivers a $54 billion cut to services and protections that middle class families depend on. America needs a forward-looking, investment budget that will focus on job creation and investing in our future, not one that recklessly abandons the millions of workers, students and seniors who still struggle to make ends meet.”
