WASHINGTON, DC: On May 23, the White House released President Trump’s budget proposal for the 2018 fiscal year. Congressman Andy Harris (MD-01) issued the following statement in response to this proposal:
“President Trump’s proposed budget for the 2018 fiscal year will balance the budget over the course of ten years, something that the previous administration failed to propose every year of its two terms. I am pleased to see welfare reform included in the President’s proposal, as well. Work requirements for able-bodied Americans receiving government assistance help elevate people out of poverty and will root out much of the waste, fraud, and abuse currently straining the nation’s welfare programs. President Trump’s business-oriented perspective is creating responsible government reform that will lead to economic growth.”
