GOP Rep. Leonard Lance (N.J.) denounced President Trump’s budget proposal Tuesday in front of hundreds of constituents at a town hall event.
“Regarding the budget document, I do not support it,” Lance told a packed auditorium with about 400 people in Cranford, N.J, Politico reported.
“The president proposes and Congress disposes,” he added.
The president’s $4.1 trillion proposed budget would significantly cut social programs such as food stamps, Medicaid and Social Security disability benefits.
Lance acknowledged that the budget plan is “merely a blueprint” and thus still in its early stages. He said the proposed cuts “are too significant,” Politico reported.http://thehill.com/homenews/house/335755-gop-rep-denounces-trumps-budget-proposal
