Shea-Porter Statement on Trump Budget Blueprint

February 27, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter (NH-01) released the following statement regarding President Trump’s budget blueprint:

“A budget is a moral document, which is why newly revealed information about President Trump’s budgetary priorities are so deeply troubling. Slashing our investments in education, science, and health and decimating programs that support working families would take our country in the wrong direction. We need to end the sequester, which is hurting military readiness, but reducing funding for diplomacy and taking away from important domestic programs sends an alarming message given President Trump’s reckless approach to foreign policy, which has already alienated our allies around the world. This blueprint doesn’t reflect our priorities for our state and for our nation, and I will fight for a budget that stands by our values and invests in our people and our future.”
