Tipton Responds to President’s FY2018 Discretionary Budget Blueprint

Mar 16, 2017

Congressman Scott Tipton (CO-03) issued the following statement after the Administration released its discretionary budget blueprint for fiscal year 2018:

“Our country is at a critical junction. With our national debt now over $20 trillion, the federal government cannot continue to spend money it doesn’t have. It is now more important than ever that we focus federal resources on keeping our country safe through defense and diplomacy, invest in programs that deliver results for Americans on Main Street and grow the economy, and ensure our social safety nets are put on a sustainable course for those who truly need them. I look forward to working through the budget and appropriations process to further our pathway towards fiscal responsibility.”
