FreedomWorks Statement in Response to White House Proposed Budget for FY 2020

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to President Trump’s proposed federal budget for FY 2020, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:

“President Trump has the right mindset regarding his proposed budget for FY 2020, which seeks to cut wasteful spending to tackle the deficit and balance the budget in 15 years. Congress, however, needs to make entitlement reform a priority if we are to address the nation’s burgeoning national debt in the long term.

“The national debt is the greatest existential threat to the United States today, and without reforming mandatory spending, Medicare and Social Security will become insolvent in less than two decades.”
