Senator Toomey Issues Statement Regarding President Trump’s Budget Proposal
Washington, D.C. – Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) issued the following statement regarding the budget proposal offered today by President Trump:
"Pro-growth tax reform, rolling back excessive regulations, balancing the federal budget, and cutting government duplication and waste are important goals that the Trump budget embraces.
"I support the broad goals of the Trump budget, but there particulars with which I disagree. For example, I do not support proposed cuts to the National Institutes of Health. While the President’s budget proposal is a statement of priorities for his administration, the ultimate responsibility for passing a budget and funding the government rests with Congress."
