WASHINGTON, D.C. – Club for Growth President David McIntosh issued the following statement in response to the release of President Trump’s proposed budget.

“We know Democrats will tear up this budget, that’s a given. But my message to Republicans is to stop spending like drunken sailors and fight for President Trump’s budget – we are watching.

“President Trump has once again submitted a pro-growth budget to Congress that would continue the Economic Boom we’ve experienced under the Trump Administration. Making the Trump tax cuts permanent, continuing to deregulate economic burdens on job creators, and enacting better free trade agreements would usher in an economic environment that continues to improve all Americans lives by getting government out of the way so that innovation and entrepreneurship can flourish. While President Trump’s budget boldly proposes to cut a record $4.6 trillion of deficit spending, we know government spending needs to be cut even more and cut even faster in order to end out-of-control federal deficits. All federal spending programs should receive scrutiny and consideration for reductions in federal spending.”
