Budgets should help build a stronger America

by Michael Polzella

The president’s budget is an irresponsibly extreme proposal that reflects a disdain for working families and a disheartening lack of vision for a stronger society.

It calls for massive cuts to health care, anti-poverty programs and investments in economic growth — all to blunt the deficit-exploding impact of the president’s tax giveaways to millionaires and corporations.

Budgets should help build a stronger America, and to do that we need investments in education, innovation, infrastructure and more. If you believe America is better off by gutting these investments, then you fundamentally misunderstand the true source of our nation’s strength.

Congressman John Yarmuth, Ranking Member of the House Budget Committee
