Video: Cornyn – President’s Budget Prioritizes National Security, Fiscal Discipline

Tuesday on the Senate floor, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) discussed President Trump’s proposed budget.  Excerpts of Sen. Cornyn’s remarks are below:

“I think it’s worth pointing out several aspects of the President’s budget that are encouraging and a welcome change from the previous Administration. For one, it balances in ten years.”

“What a welcome relief from a White House budget anchored around overspending and growing the size of government, which we’ve seen for the last eight years. The other thing that the President’s budget does is it reverses the defense sequester. This is the artificial cap we put on defense spending.”

“One thing that President Trump has done, which I find a welcome sign, is that he wants to properly resource our military, so we can better defend against increasing threats around the world.”

“The President’s budget reflects a better understanding of the threat environment ahead, and for that I am grateful.”
