Rep. Juan Vargas Statement on Trump Budget Request
Washington, D.C. (March 11, 2019) – Rep. Juan Vargas released the following statement regarding the President’s Budget for 2020:
“The proposed 2020 budget is the product of the President’s distorted reality and lack of understanding of what our nation really needs. By reducing billions of dollars from essential programs that support working families and individuals struggling to get by, he and his Administration are putting the American people, along with our entire economic future, at risk. This ‘dead on arrival’ proposal is reckless and lacks the foundation to move our nation forward. We deserve better leadership from the President.”
Vargas represents California’s 51st Congressional District which includes the southern portion of San Diego County, all of Imperial County and California’s entire U.S.-Mexico border. Vargas was first elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2012 and is currently serving his fourth term in Congress. He serves on the House Financial Services Committee and House Foreign Affairs Committee.
