WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Congressman Leonard Lance (NJ-07) released the following statement on President Trump’s budget proposal:

“The President’s budget acknowledges that we tax and spend too much in this country and we need a serious plan to tackle our national deficit and 20 trillion dollars in national debt.  Congress has worked in a bipartisan fashion to reduce the deficit by nearly one trillion dollars and I agree that we need to keep up that momentum.  But I do not agree with each and every line item.  Cutting the Coast Guard, programs through the Department of Justice and revenue builders like the NEA are penny wise but pound foolish.  Congress will have the final say on spending priorities for the Nation and I want to reach bipartisan solutions on mandatory spending before our rising debt leads to economic hardship.  Both political parties contributed to this problem and both need to be engaged in the solution.”
