KENNEDY STATEMENT ON TRUMP BUDGET

May 23, 2017
Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Joe Kennedy III released the following statement in response to the Trump Administration’s budget proposal.
 
“As any American family knows, budgets reflect deeply personal, often painful, choices about values, priorities and necessities.  The President’s budget reveals his evident belief that the economic dignity of working men and women is expendable. It tells those touched by illness, aging, disability, job loss or other circumstances beyond control that their future – and their family -- is worth less. And it spells out the Trump worldview in devastating detail: a place where health care and education and our most human needs, like food and shelter, are provided based on wealth and power.”
 
Earlier this morning, Congressman Kennedy spoke on the floor in opposition to the Trump Administration’s budget proposal. Click below for his full remarks.
