Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC), chairwoman of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, today issued the following statement in response to President Trump’s budget proposal:
Crafting a budget is about setting priorities, and during the last eight years, it seems the only priority in Washington was to spend beyond our means and far more than hardworking taxpayers can afford. That approach isn’t sustainable for family budgets, and it is not sustainable for the federal government. President Trump has promised to begin getting our nation’s fiscal house in order, and this budget shows that he intends to keep his promise.
No one will agree with every proposal outlined in this budget, and it is up to Congress to carefully review the details. That is precisely what we will do in the coming weeks. We look forward to working with the president to implement fiscally responsible policies that promote economic prosperity, keep workers safe, and help ensure all Americans have access to an excellent education.
