Jeff Merkley: Trump’s Budget Is Billionaires First and It Eviscerates Rural America
MERKLEY: "Yes, I do. A budget is a statement of value. President Trump doesn’t honor — doesn’t have the integrity to honor his campaign promises on Medicaid and Social Security. We also learned that it’s not an America first vision for America, it’s billionaires first and it’s rural and working Americans last. This budget just proceeds to eviscerate rural America by slashing rural water supply programs, rural airport services, rural clinics, rural post offices and even rural rental housing. I’ll try to say all of that quickly."
