Dr. Bucshon’s Statement on President’s Budget Blueprint

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – Eighth District Congressman Larry Bucshon, M.D. released the following statement regarding the Trump Administration’s proposed Fiscal Year 2018 budget released this week:

“President Trump put forth a fiscally responsible budget blueprint that prioritizes our national defense and military, expanding job opportunities, and growing wages for hardworking families over growth of government and bureaucracy in Washington, D.C.,” said Bucshon. “While these priorities are a good starting point for Congress, there are specific portions of the budget blueprint, like the President’s proposed reduction in funding for medical research at institutions like the NIH, that I do have concerns with. Ultimately, the Constitution grants Congress the power of the purse and responsibility for establishing the federal budget. I look forward to working hand-in-hand with the Trump Administration as Congress works to pass a responsible, balanced budget that respects hard-working taxpayers while also providing funding for the priorities of the American people.”
