WASHINGTONToday, Congressman James P. McGovern (D-MA), Chairman of the House Rules Committee, released the following statement in response to President Trump’s FY 2020 budget:

“President Trump’s budget isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on. Last year, Republicans jammed through massive tax breaks for the rich. Now they want to pay for them by making trillions of dollars’ worth of cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and nutrition programs that veterans and seniors rely on. Give me a break. This isn’t about fiscal responsibility – this is about going after vulnerable people in our society so that those at the top can get a tax break. It’s disgusting, it’s wrong, and it will not pass.”
