FreedomWorks Supportive of Trump Budget, Ax Not a Scalpel

FreedomWorks released a statement from President Adam Brandon about President Donald Trump’s FY 2018 budget proposal.

“This budget proposal is a serious attempt to trim the fat in many different bloated areas of the federal government. We are in a very bad fiscal position since President Obama ran up the debt by trillions of dollars. We need an ax, not a scalpel, if we are ever going to reduce our debt.

“One immediate benefit of a budget mindset like this will be a reduced number of federal employees. With fewer federal employees and President Trump’s regulatory freeze, it will be more difficult to overregulate the drivers of our economy. That means more jobs and a better standard of living for everyone.”
