WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Pete Stauber (MN-08) made the following statement in regard to President Trump’s proposed 2020 budget:

“While I agree with President Trump’s overall goal to reduce the skyrocketing national debt, I believe we can do so without reducing spending on the Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security programs countless Minnesotans rely on,” said Stauber. “I made a promise to protect these critical programs for those who need it most, and it is a promise I intend to keep. It is important to note that this proposed budget is a starting point, and I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle along with the President to secure a final budget that adequately funds these important programs many Minnesotans rely on.”
