Statement Of California Democratic Party Chair Eric C. Bauman On Trump Budget

SACRAMENTO — California Democratic Party Chair Eric C. Bauman released the following statement on President Trump’s budget proposal submitted to Congress today:

“The President’s proposal takes a wrecking ball to California, particularly its most vulnerable citizens, seniors, immigrants, and the middle class. Gutting Meals on Wheels, Medicaid, childhood nutrition programs, college loan programs, and disability benefits, while putting billions into the construction of a border wall makes no sense from either a human or a budgetary perspective. The Trump budget blasts holes in California’s safety net and state budget, and I am confident Democrats in our Congressional delegation will fight to block this budget and work to pass one which reflects the values of the American people.”
