Today, Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL), a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, released the following statement after President Donald Trump submitted his 2019 fiscal year budget request to Congress:

“We knew this was coming. After blowing a massive hole in the budget with a colossal corporate tax giveaway, President Trump now wants seniors and working families to pay for it with huge cuts to Medicare and Medicaid. The wealthy get a massive tax cut and our elderly and disabled pay for it with cuts in their health care. Welcome to President Trump’s ‘Great American Heist.’”
