Statement on President Trump’s Budget Blueprint

March 16, 2017

WASHINGTON-Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) issued the following statement on President Trump's budget blueprint.

"President Trump's budget blueprint proposes a significant increase in spending to strengthen national security, rebuild our neglected military, and honor our commitment to veterans with additional resources for the VA. To pay for these changes, it proposes reductions to non-defense programs. After years of overspending, I am encouraged that the President has proposed actual spending cuts and has committed to maintaining the overall cap on discretionary spending. I look forward to carefully examining each of the proposed reductions in this budget proposal."
