OVER THE COURSE OF THE DECADE THE PRESIDENT'S BUDGET WOULD SLASH NON DEFENSE DISCRETIONARY FUNDS BY MORE THAN ONE POINT FIVE TRILLION DOLLARS TAKING A WRECKING BALL TO AMERICA'S ECONOMIC FUTURE AND SECURITY AT THE SAME TIME IT EXTENDS PROVIDE EXPIRING PROVISIONS OF THE TWENTY SEVENTEEN GOP TAX LAW ADDING MORE THAN ONE TRILLION DOLLARS TO THE DEBT REALITY THE PRESIDENT WAS UNABLE TO HIDE EVEN WITH THIS FANTASY GROWTH PROJECTIONS THIS PRESIDENT IS ASKING WORKING AMERICANS TO SACRIFICE THEIR SAFETY THEIR HELP THEIR ECONOMIC SECURITY THEIR FUTURES TO COVER THE COST OF REPUBLICANS TAX SCAM IT WAS NEVER GOING TO PAY FOR ITSELF WELL I HAVE COME TO EXPECT SHOCKING UNTHINKABLE BUDGET CUTS FROM THIS ADMINISTRATION IT NEVER GETS ANY EASIER TO SEE OUR PRESIDENTS COMPLETE DISREGARD FOR THE HUMAN COST OF HIS BUDGET

THANKFULLY WITH THE BUDGET ALREADY IN PLACE FOR TWENTY TWENTY AND TWENTY TWENTY ONE AND THE SENATE MAJORITY LEADER REAFFIRMING HIS COMMITMENT TO THE BIPARTISAN BUDGET ACT OF TWENTY NINETEEN I'M CONFIDENT THAT CONGRESS WILL STAND FIRM AGAINST THE PRESIDENT'S WAR VISION FOR OUR NATION'S FUTURE FINALLY DIRECTOR VOTE FOR OBVIOUS REASONS THERE'S A LOT OF INTEREST IN YOUR PRESENCE HERE TODAY THIS IS THE FIRST TIME YOU'VE TESTIFIED SINCE PRESIDENT TRUMP WAS IMPEACHED I'M NOT GOING TO REHASH THAT ENTIRE PROCESS BUT A MAJOR FINDING OF CONGRESS' INVESTIGATIONS WAS THAT THE ADMINISTRATION BROKE FEDERAL LAW

WHEN ONLY BE FAILED TO ABIDE BY THE IMPOUNDMENT CONTROL THAT LAW FALLS SQUARELY WITHIN THE JURISDICTION OF THE BUDGET COMMITTEE SO I THINK IT IS CRITICALLY IMPORTANT THAT YOU STREETER OMB IS APPEARANCE TO THE I SEE A TODAY AS DIRECTOR IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY YOUR OBLIGATION TO MAKE SURE THAT AND BE IS IN COMPLETE COMPLIANCE WITH THE I SEE A AND FULLY RESPECTS THE CONSTITUTION GRANTS CONGRESS THE POWER OF THE PURSE I PROMISE THAT THIS COMMITTEE WILL CONTINUE ITS VIGILANCE AND NOT ALLOW THE PRESIDENT TO UNILATERALLY SUBSTITUTE THIS BUDGET FOR THE BIPARTISAN BUDGET ALREADY IN PLACE AND I KEEP MY PROMISES

I LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING YOUR TESTIMONY I KNOW YOUR FIVE MINUTES TO THE RANKING MEMBER I THANK THE CHAIRMAN FOR HOLDING THE HEARING AND A THANK YOU- ACTING DIRECTOR VOTE FOR BEING HERE WITH US TODAY WE'RE HERE EXAMINE THE PRESIDENT'S BUDGET REQUEST FOR FISCAL TWENTY ONE IT IS MY HOPE THAT WE WILL STAYED ON TO ASK I APPLAUD THE PRESIDENT FOR ACTUALLY DOING A BUDGET HERE IN THE HOUSE THE BUDGET COMMITTEE

HASN'T PROVIDED A BUDGET INTERESTING TO ME BECAUSE OUR COMMITTEE MAJORITY'S WEBSITE- THERE'S A SECTION TITLED RESPONSIBILITY IN THE FIRST SENTENCE IN THE SECTION READS THE COMMITTEE'S CHIEF RESPONSIBILITY IS TO DRAFT AN ANNUAL CONCURRENT RESOLUTION ON THE BUDGET THAT PROVIDES A CONGRESSIONAL FRAMEWORK FOR SPENDING AND REVENUE LEVELS THE FEDERAL SURPLUS OR DEFICIT AND PUBLIC DEBT AS WE ALL KNOW THE CONSTITUTION GIVES CONGRESS THE POWER OF THE PURSE FUNDING THE PRIORITIES OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHILE ADDRESSING OUR NATION SERIOUS FISCAL CHALLENGES IS NO EASY TASK IT REQUIRES A LOT OF COLLABORATION

WHICH IS WHY HEARING FROM THE MINISTRY DAY IS VITALLY IMPORTANT IN RECENT MONTHS WE'VE HEARD FROM THE LIKES OF THE CONGRESSIONAL BUDGET OFFICE AND JUST YESTERDAY FROM THE FEDERAL RESERVE AND MANY OTHER OUTSIDE EXPERTS WHO HAVE ALL CONSISTANTLY WARNED THAT OUR NATION IS NEARING A FISCAL CRISIS WE OUGHT TO PAY ATTENTION TO THOSE WARNINGS THE NATIONAL DEBT IS OVER TWENTY THREE TRILLION IS PROJECTED TO GROW TO MORE THAN THIRTY SIX TRILLION WITHIN A DECADE

SOON THERE AFTER ON THIS PATH THE FEDERAL DEBT WILL REACH THE HIGHEST LEVEL IN AMERICAN HISTORY AS A PERCENTAGE OF THE ECONOMY SHE B O PROJECTED BY TWENTY FORTY NINE THE FEDERAL DEBT WILL EQUAL TWO HUNDRED FORTY EIGHT THOUSAND DOLLARS PER AMERICAN THAT'S ALMOST A MILLION DOLLARS PER FAMILY OF FOUR FROM THERE

IT ONLY GROWS MORE INTEREST PAYMENTS ON THE DEBT WILL INCREASINGLY CROWD OUT OTHER FEDERAL SPENDING THAT IS DIRECTED TOWARD PROGRAMS THAT AMERICANS RELY ON SHE BE- PROJECTS INTEREST PAYMENTS ON THE DEBT WILL AMOUNT TO THREE HUNDRED EIGHTY TWO BILLION IN FISCAL TWENTY THAT'S ELEVEN PERCENT OF FEDERAL TAX REVENUE WE CANNOT CONTINUE ON THIS PATH WE HAVE TO LEAD BY EXAMPLE

WE HAVE TO MAKE THE TOUGH CHOICES NECESSARY TO REVERSE COURSE YET HERE WE ARE THE GREATEST NATION IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD AND WE CAN'T EVEN MANAGE TO COME UP WITH SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS A DOGGONE BUDGET BUT THE PRESIDENT IS DOING HIS DUTY AS PUT FORWARD A BUDGET TO TAKE STEPS IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION I RECOGNIZE IT THERE WILL BE OTHERS IT WILL PUSH BACK ON HIS PLAN

BUT AT LEAST WE HAVE A PLAN TO LOOK AT THE BUDGET DOES NOT ACHIEVE BALANCE WITHIN TEN YEARS BUT THE OVERALL TEN YEAR FISCAL TRAJECTORY PUTS THE BOUT A BUDGET ON A PATH TO BALANCE BY TWENTY THIRTY FIVE THE PRESIDENT'S BUDGET REDUCES DEFICITS BY FOUR POINT SIX TRILLION BETWEEN TWENTY TWENTY ONE AND TWENTY THIRTY WHEREAS UNDER CURRENT LAW DEFICITS ARE MORE THAN A TRILLION DOLLARS ANNUALLY AND UNDER THIS PROPOSAL THE ANNUAL DEFICIT WOULD BE LOWERED TO TWO HUNDRED SIXTY ONE BILLION BY TWENTY THIRTY FURTHER THIS BUDGET REDUCES THE SHARE OF DEBT HELD BY THE PUBLIC FROM 81% OF GDP TO SIXTY SIX PERCENT OF GDP ARE KIND OF LIKE THAT DIRECTION

THAT'S A TREMENDOUS IMPROVEMENT FROM THE HISTORICALLY HIGH DEBT LEVELS PROJECTED FOR TWENTY THIRTY UNDER CURRENT LAW THE PRESIDENT'S BUDGET ALSO DOES NOT BREACH THE SPENDING CAPS CALLED FOR THE BIPARTISAN BUDGET ACT OF TWO THOUSAND NINETEEN IT MEETS A DEFENSE SPENDING CAP ON HIS BELOW THE NON DEFENSE DISCRETIONARY CAP BY THIRTY SEVEN BILLIONFOR FISCAL TWENTY ONE ADDITIONALLY THERE ARE SEVERAL PRIORITIES I'M PLEASED TO SEE IN THIS BUDGET

FIRST AS SOMEONE WHO SERVED IN THE MILITARY I BELIEVE ENSURING THE SAFETY AND SECURITY OF AMERICAN PEOPLE IS PROBABLY OUR MOST FUNDAMENTAL PURPOSE OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT I APPRECIATE THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION'S CLEAR COMMITMENT TO THIS RESPONSIBILITY SECOND I ALSO APPRECIATE THE ADMINISTRATION'S FOCUS ON THIS BUDGET ON IMPROVING THE LONG TERM HEALTH OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE BY INVESTING IN MEASURES TO COMBAT THE OPIOID EPIDEMIC THAT IS CRIPPLING COMMUNITIES ACROSS THE COUNTRY

THIRD WE'VE HEARD IN THIS ROOM MANY TIMES THAT OUR ECONOMY IS HISTORICALLY STRONG THE NUMBER OF JOBS AVAILABLE EXCEEDS NUMBER OF PEOPLE LOOKING FOR WORK BUY A MILLION WE MUST ENSURE THAT OUR WORK FORCE MEETS THE DEMANDS OF OUR STRONG ECONOMY WHICH IS WHY AND PLEASE THE ADMINISTRATION IS ONCE AGAIN INVESTING IN CAREER AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION BUT AS WE'VE SAID BEFORE THE BIGGEST THREAT TO ALL OF THESE PRIORITIES AND TO LONG TERM

OF OUR NATION IS OUR OUT OF CONTROL MANDATORY SPENDING ACCOUNTS FOR SEVEN TEN OF ALL FEDERAL SPENDING AND IS PROTECTED PRIEST SO ENTER STEVIE A TWENTY TWENTY NINE THESE PROGRAM A FOR GROWN INTENT SIZE AND SCOPE IN THE FOUR EXCEEDED WHAT WE CAN AFFORD

I'VE SAID MANY TIMES THAT WE CANNOT HAVE A REAL CONVERSATION ABOUT REDUCING THE DEFICIT AND DEBT WITHOUT ADDRESSING MANDATORY SPENDING THE PRESIDENT'S BUDGET TAKE STEPS IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION THERE'S A LOT OF WORK TO BE DONE IT'S IMPERATIVE WE WORK TOGETHER IN A BIPARTISAN BICAMERAL FASHION TO ADVANCE A BUDGET THAT FUNDS OUR NATION'S IMPORTANT PRIORITIES WHILE ACKNOWLEDGING ARE VERY REAL FISCAL CHALLENGES I LOOK FORWARD TO THE DISCUSSION TODAY I THANK THE CHAIRMAN I YIELD BACK THE BALANCE OF MY TIME

I THANK THE GENTLEMAN FOR HIS OPENING STATEMENT- NOW ONCE AGAIN WELCOME- ACTING DIRECTOR VOTE- YOU HAVE THE FLOOR AND YOU HAVE FIVE MINUTES FOR YOURS A PREPARED STATEMENT THANK YOU CHAIRMAN YARMOUTH AND RANKING MEMBERWOMACK IN MEMBERS OF THE BUDGET COMMITTEE I'M HERE TODAY TO DISCUSS THE PRESIDENT'S BUDGET FOR FISCAL YEAR TWENTY TWENTY WHICH WE'VE TITLED A BUDGET FOR AMERICA'S FUTURE

THIS IS A BUDGET THAT REFLECTS AND BUILD UPON THE PROGRAM WITH ECONOMIC POLICIES OF THIS PRESIDENT WHICH OF UNLEASHED ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL ECONOMIES IN AMERICAN HISTORY UNEMPLOYMENT IS DOWN ACROSS THE BOARD PEOPLE ARE COMING BACK INTO THE WORK FORCE WAGES ARE RISING FOUR OH ONE K'S PENSIONS AND COLLEGE SAVINGS ACCOUNTS ARE GROWING THIS BUDGET CONTINUES THESE ECONOMIC POLICIES AND ONCE AGAIN PROVIDES A PATH WERE IN DURING ECONOMIC EXPANSION BY ATTACKING THE VERY REAL PROBLEM OF DEFICITS IN OUR NATION'S DEBT

THE PLAN OFFERED TODAY PROPOSES TO BALANCE THE BUDGET WITHIN FIFTEEN YEARS BY PROPOSING MORE DEFICIT REDUCTION FOUR POINT SIX TRILLION THAN ANY PRESIDENT IN HISTORY UNDER THIS BUDGET OUR CURRENT PATH OF TRILLION DOLLAR DEFICITS AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE WILL BE REDUCED TO TWO HUNDRED SIXTY ONE BILLION IN TWENTY THIRTY WITH A SURPLUS IN TWENTY THIRTY FIVE DEBT AS A PERCENTAGE OF GDP CURRENTLY 81% AND PROJECTED TO GROW TO A HUNDRED PERCENT WITHIN TEN YEARS WILL DROP 266% BY THE END OF THE TEN YEAR WINDOW BUT THIS BUDGET IS NOT A GREEN EYE SHADES BUDGET IT FUNDS NATIONAL PRIORITIES THAT THIS ADMINISTRATION BELIEVES ARE VITAL FOR THE SECURITY AND PROSPERITY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

LET ME GIVE YOU A FEW EXAMPLES SEVEN HUNDRED FORTY ONE BILLION DOLLARS FOR THE DEFENSE OF THIS COUNTRY THIS AMOUNT COMES ON THE HEELS OF DEFENSE BUDGETS OF SEVEN HUNDRED BILLION SEVEN HUNDRED SIXTEEN BILLION AND SEVEN HUNDRED THIRTY EIGHT BILLION IN PRIOR YEARS NUCLEAR MODERNIZATION ITSELF WILL RECEIVE A NEARLY 20% INCREASE FROM THE LAST FISCAL YEAR

AT THE SAME TIME THIS BUDGET ALSO REFLECTS AT A HIGH LEVEL AN ASSUMPTION THAT ARE OVERSEAS OPERATIONS WILL REQUIRE LESS FUNDING AS THE PRESIDENT WORKS TO END ENDLESS WARS THE BUDGET ALSO MAKES A SUBSTANTIAL INVESTMENTS IN BORDER SECURITY AND IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT INSURERS AT EVERY HIGH SCHOOL HAS A HIGH QUALITY CAREER TECHNICAL EDUCATION PROGRAM FUNDS NASSAR'S RETURN TO THE MOON BY TWENTY TWENTY FOUR AS A PLATFORM TO MARS AND THEY'RE AFTER AND GROWS VA MEDICAL CARE 30% TO FULLY FUND THE MISSION ACT

INCLUDES SUBSTANTIAL RESOURCES TO FIGHT AGAINST THE OPIOID EPIDEMIC AND PROPOSES A ONE TRILLION DOLLAR INFRASTRUCTURE PACKAGE TO REBUILD OUR ROADS AND BRIDGES IT ALSO KEEPS THE PROMISES THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS MADE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE SUCH AS PROTECTING SOCIAL SECURITY AND MEDICARE FOR SENIORS THIS PRESIDENT IS A PROMISES MADE PROMISES KEPT KIND OF PRESIDENT IN THIS BUDGET IS NO DIFFERENT DESPITE THE PREDICTABLE MISLEADING CLAIMS BY MANY ACROSS THE OTHER SIDE MEDICARE WILL GROW N AVERAGE OF 6% A YEAR UNDER THIS BUDGET

THE BUDGET DOES PROPOSE GOOD GOVERNMENT REFORMS TO LOWER DRUG PRICES ROOT OUT IMPROPER PAYMENTS AN ADDRESS WASTEFUL SPENDING THIS BUDGET PROPOSES TO REMOVE FROM MEDICARE CERTAIN PROGRAMS SUCH AS UNCOMPENSATED CARE IN GRADUATE MEDICAL EDUCATION WHICH ARE TRAINING THE MEDICARE TRUST FUND EVEN THOUGH THEY BENEFIT MORE THAN JUST YOUR SENIORS TO BE CLEAR THESE PROGRAMS WOULD STILL BE FUNDED OUTSIDE OF MEDICARE BUT WITH REFORMS TO LIMIT THEIR GROWTH SIMILARLY THIS BUDGET PROPOSES PAYMENT SITE NEUTRALITY FOR THE SAME SERVICE BEING PERFORMED AT A DIFFERENT HEALTH CARE LOCATION SO CATS CAN COST THE SAME AS AN OUTPATIENT OUTPATIENT HOSPITAL AS IT DOES THE PHYSICIAN OFFICE

LOWERING THE COST OF HEALTHCARE IS NOT A CUT MEDICAID WILL GROW AT 3% WHICH IS HIGHER THAN THE RATE OF INFLATION BUT THE PROGRAM HAS FIFTY SEVEN BILLION DOLLARS IN IMPROPER PAYMENTS LAST YEAR IN HHS LACKS THE STATUTORY TOOLS TO RECOUP MOST OF THESE COSTS THIS BUDGET WOULD PROVIDE SUCH AUTHORITY WHILE GIVING STATES THE OPTION OF A BLOCK GRANT OR PER CAPITA PAYMENT ONLY IN WASHINGTON DC DOES IT LOOK AT A BUDGET THAT GROWS EVERY YEAR FASTER THAN INFLATION AND SAYS THAT'S A CUT

THE BUDGET PROPOSES OTHER COMMON SENSE MANDATORY SAVERS SUCH AS A UNIVERSAL WORK REQUIREMENT FOR MEDICAID TANF HOUSING AND FOOD STAMPS THIS WILL ENSURE THAT WE ARE HELPING TO LIFT ABLE BODIED ADULTS WITHOUT DEPENDENCE OFF OF A CYCLE OF DEPENDENCY AND ONTO A LADDER OF ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY IN TERMS OF DISCRETIONARY SPENDING THIS BUDGET WILL PROPOSE A SUBSTANTIAL REDUCTION SIMILAR TO PREVIOUS BUDGETS WELL BUDGETING AND THE DEFENSE CAP UNDER CURRENT LAW THIS BUDGET PROPOSES A 5% CUT THIS BUDGET CONTINUES TO BE A STATEMENT FROM THIS PRESIDENT AND HIS ADMINISTRATION THAT WE STAND WITH FAMILIES AND BUSINESSES ACROSS THE COUNTRY WHO HAVE TO BALANCE THEIR BUDGETS

WASHINGTON DC DOES NOT STAND WITH THEM FOR TOO LONG HAS OPERATE UNDER A DIFFERENT PRINCIPLE OF RECKLESSLY SPENDING OTHER PEOPLE'S MONEY THAT HAS TO CHANGE AND HOPEFULLY THIS BUDGET LEADS TO A- READY TAKING QUESTIONS I THANK YOU MR VOTE FOR YOUR OPENING STATEMENT- IT AND WE WILL BEGIN OUR QUESTION ANSWER SESSION NOW REMINDER- MEMBERS MAY SUBMIT WRITTEN QUESTIONS TO BE ANSWERED LETTER LATER IN WRITING THOSE QUESTIONS AND MISTER RHODES ANSWERS WILL BE MADE PART OF THE FORMAL HEARING RECORD ANY MEMBERS WHOWISH TO SUBMIT QUESTIONS FOR THE RECORD MAY DO SO WITHIN SEVEN DAYS

AS WE USUALLY DO THE RANKING MEMBER AND I WILL DEFER OUR QUESTIONS UNTIL THE END OF THE HEARING AND I NOW RECOGNIZE THE VICE CHAIRMAN OF THE COMMITTEE MISTER MOLTEN FROM OF MASSACHUSETTS FOR FIVE MINUTES A METRO THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR BEING HERE TODAY- I WANT TO ADDRESS MY QUESTIONS TO THE DEATH- THE- THE PRESIDENT'S CLAIM THAT THIS BUDGET IS GOOD FOR NATIONAL SECURITY FOR NATIONAL DEFENSE I FIND THAT A LITTLE BIT HARD TO BELIEVE WHEN IT CONFLICTS- DIRECTLY WITH THE ADVICE THAT HE HAS BEEN GIVEN BY HIS OWN GENERALS

AND ITS CULTURE OF THE FUTURE DEFENSE TASK FORCE ON THE HOUSE ARMED SERVICES COMMITTEE I'M ALSO PARTICULARLY CONCERNED ABOUT THE ADDRESS THE INVESTMENTS THAT CHINA IS MAKING IN OUR INDEED DEVELOP A NEW GENERATION OF WEAPONS THAT WE ARE FAILING TO MATCH DO YOU RECALL DIRECTOR HOW WE RESPONDED TO THE SPUTNIK MOMENT IN THE NINE IN NINETEEN FIFTY SEVEN WE INCREASED OUR NATIONAL INVESTMENT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE WERE PREPARED FOR OUR ADVERSARIES RIGHT IN HAND WHERE DO WE INCREASES INVESTMENTS- WE WOULD INCREASE THEM IN THE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT AREA IT'S SPECIFICALLY IN EDUCATION IN GRADUATE SCHOOL EDUCATION AND YET IN THIS BUDGET PROPOSES ELIMINATING SUBSIDIZED STUDENT LOANS

IT CUTS 8% FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION HOW DOES THAT MEET OUR NEXT GENERATION DEFENSE NEEDS IF WE'RE NOT DOING THIS BASIC ARE IN THE IF WE'RE NOT INVESTING IN THE PEOPLE WHO WILL MAKE THE NEW DISCOVERIES ESSENTIAL FOR NATIONAL DEFENSE WE BELIEVE WE ARE- INVESTING IN OUR PEOPLE IN THIS BUDGET WE DON'T BELIEVE THAT WE ARE MAKING SIGNIFICANT REFORMS TO EDUCATION AS A RESULT OF THIS BUDGET FOR INSTANCE THERE'S A NEW PROPOSAL AND EDUCATION BLOCK GRANT TO TAKE THIRTY DIFFERENT PROGRAMS THAT WE BELIEVE CAN BE BETTER- REFORMS IN GIVE STATES MORE FLEXIBILITY TO HAVE BETTER OUTCOMES AND THEY KNOW THEIR PEOPLE THEY KNOW TEIR SCHOOLS IN OTHER COMMUNITIES BACK THAT'S AN EXAMPLE WHERE WE THINK FOR BASICALLY THE SAME AMOUNT OF MONEY WHEN YOU COOK CONTROL FOR THE FACT THAT WERE A LIMITING CERTAIN PROGRAMS THAT ARE WASTEFUL FOR THE SAME MONEY THAT

BLAST YEAR BETTER OUTCOMES OF THE STATE LEVEL IN THE AREA OF A SO ADD TO BACK YOU'RE SAYING THAT WILL HAVE THE SAME AMOUNT OF MONEY WHEN THE PRESIDENT CLAIMS OR WHAT ILY INVESTING MORE BUT- SUN HOPE EVERYONE IS HAVIA GREAT DAY SO FAR ME ALWAYS MIKE BASED ALWAYS GREAT TO BE HERE WITH YEAH WE'RE GONNA GO OUT TO A LOT OF THAT RIGHT NOW ON THE SENATE FLOOR

THIS IS- WHERE THE SENATE IS DEBATING ON THE WAR POWERS RESOLUTION ACT REGARDING IRAN A FORMAL VOTE ON THE MOTION TO THE PRO CD IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW SENATORS ARE DEBATING ON THAT ISSUE THIS WOULD A CURB THE CURRENT SITUATION FOR IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN MEASURE LIKELY WILL GET A VOTE TOMORROW HAS A BIPARTISAN MAJORITY BUT LACKS A SUPER MAJORITY TO OVERRIDE A PROSPECTIVE VETO THAT'S HERE A LITTLE BIT MORE NOW ON NEWS THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP CONTINUED HIS PURSES PR TOURIST PERSONAL RETRIBUTION TOUR INTERFERING AT THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE I'M NOT A LAWYER WAS TO PRESS I KNOW THE PRESIDING OFFICER IS MOST OF MY COLLEAGUES ON BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE ARE BUT THEY KNOW A PRESIDENT DOESN'T INTERFERE WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE SO AS PART OF THIS PERSONAL RETRIBUTION CHORE HE'S HE'S INTERFERING THERE HE STRONG ARMING APPOINTEES TO OVERRULE THE DECISION OF CAREER PROSECUTORS

OF COURSE CRITICS CONVENIENTLY IGNORE THAT THE SIZE OF THE TAX REFUND SAYS NOTHING WHATSOEVER ABOUT THE TAX LIABILITY OF AN INDIVIDUAL

IN THE END THE CRITICISM PROVED TO BE FLAT OUT WRONG KIDS ARE TAX RELIEF IN THE AVERAGE SIZE AND NUMBER REFUNDS ENDED UP BEING CLOSELY IN LINE WITH PREVIOUS YEARS I'M HOPEFUL THAT WE CAN AVOID SIMMER SCARE TACTICS IN THIS YEAR'S FILING SEASON NOTHING THE CRITICS CAN SAY WILL REFUTE THE FACT THAT EVERY INCOME GROUP IN EVERY STATE SAW TAX CUTS UNDER TAX REFORM AND- THIS IS PARTICULARLY TRUE FOR ALL AND MIDDLE INCOME FAMILIES AS WE SEE STATISTICS ALMOST WEEKLY ABOVE BLUE COLLAR WORKERS GET A HIGHER PERCENTAGE WAGE INCREASES ON AVERAGE THAN THE MANAGEMENT CLASS INSTEAD I HOPE THAT WE CAN WORK TOGETHER ON POLICIES THAT WILL BENEFIT ALL AMERICANS INCLUDING SOME OF THE PRESENCE BUT ALSO BECAUSE THIS

HAS A SOLID FOUNDATION A BIPARTISAN ACCOMPLISHMENT IN RECENT MONTHS INCLUDING THE SECURE ACT THE TAXPAYERS FIRST ACT IN THE U S M C A TRADE DEAL AND AFTER EXTENSIVE NEGOTIATIONS WE CAME TOGETHER JUST BEFORE CHRISTMAS TO EXTEND A NUMBER OF TEMPORARY BIPARTISAN TAX PROVISIONS I WISH MORE COULD HAVE BEEN DONE TO RESOLVE THEM ONCE AND FOR ALL AS WE DID IN REPEALING THREE OWNERS AFFORDABLE CARE ACT HEALTH TAXES

BUT HOPEFULLY OUR EFFORT IN ITS EFFORTS IN DECEMBER CAN LEAD US TO SUCCESS IN FUTURE DISCUSSIONS ON THE EXPIRING PROVISIONS THAT ARE COMING UP AT THE END OF THIS YEAR I'M ALSO ENCOURAGED BY THE PROGRESS IS MAN MADE AT THE ALWAYS CD- TO- REACH A MULTI LATERAL GLOBAL TAX AGREEMENT ON DIGITAL ECONOMY SO WYDEN AND I SENSOR YOU AGO HAVE REMAIN YOU NINE AND BIPARTISAN IN OUR MESSAGE THAT UNILATERAL MEASURES THAT DISCRIMINATE AGAINST AMERICAN COMPANIES CANNOT BE TOLERATED AND WE CONTINUE TO SUPPORT TREASURY DEPARTMENTS IN THESE NEGOTIATIONS AS A SHARE PROGRESS IS NOW

WE SHOULD BUILD UPON THESE PAST SUCCESS IS TO MAKE SURE THE TREASURE IN OUR TAX LAWS ARE WORKING FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE I'VE SEEN ADMINISTRATION BUDGET PROPOSALS FROM BOTH REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTS ALIKE NO MATTER WHICH PARTY CONTROLS THE WHITE HOUSE MEMBERS WON'T SUPPORT EVERYTHING THAT IS IN THAT BUDGET AS A MATTER OF FACT ONE OF THE FORMER PRESIDENTS- I GUESS IT WAS PRESENT ABOVE OBAMA'S LAST BUDGET WAS DEFEATED ON A NINETY NINE TO ZERO OF ALL AS I'VE SAID BEFORE IN OUR SYSTEM THE PRESIDENT PROPOSES AND CONGRESS DISPOSES EVEN SOD TODAY'S HEARING IS PART OF AN IMPORTANT PROCESS OF LOOKING FOR THINGS THAT PEOPLE ON BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE CAN AGREE ON TO SUPPORT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE IN THE MOST JUST FISCALLY RESPONSIBLE WAY I'VE HAD MY SAY KNOWN AS TIME FOR CENTER WHITE THANK YOU VERY MUCH MISTER CHAIRMAN MISTER CHAIRMAN I APPRECIATE TO ALSO YOUR SCHEDULING THIS HEARING QUICKLY

THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION'S BUDGET IS BUILT ON POLICIES THAT HILLAGE WORKING FAMILIES TO PAY FOR NEW WINDFALLS FOR MULTINATIONAL CORPORATIONS AND THE WEALTHY IF HURT FULL HAS BEEN ON CLEARED TO SPY OVER JUST THE PAST FEW WEEKS INTO EVENTS I'M GOING TO TOUCH ON FIRST IT RECENTLY CAME TO LIGHT THAT THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION ACTING ON THEIR OWN FOUND AWAY TO MILK THE TWENTY SEVENTEEN TAX LAW

TO CREATE MORE THAN ONE HUNDRED BILLION DOLLARS WORTH OF SHINY NEW CORPORATE TAX LOOPHOLES NOW COLLEAGUES UNDERSTAND THESE ARE NOT THE SAME HUGE LOOPHOLES THAT I AND OTHERS WARNED ABOUT BACK IN TWENTY SEVENTEEN WHEN THE BILL WAS WRITTEN THESE ARE BRAND NEW LOOPHOLES THAT ARE THE PRODUCT OF TRICKY TREASURY DEPARTMENT REGULATORY MANEUVERING SOMETHING THAT IN MIND YOU LOOKS LIKE IT GOES BEYOND THE DEPARTMENT'S LEGAL AUTHORITY THE BOTTOM LINE IT SURE LOOKS LIKE CORPORATE SPECIAL INTERESTS ARE GOING TO MAKE OFF WITH BRAND NEW LOOPHOLES WORTH A HUNDRED BILLION DOLLARS IN ADDITION TO THE OUTLANDISH SHARE THEY GOT FROM THE ORIGINAL TWO TRILLION DOLLAR TRUMP TAX LAW

SENATOR BROWN AND I WANT TO STOP THIS FLEECING OF THE AMERICAN TAXPAYER SO TWO DAYS CENTER BROWN AND I ARE INTRODUCING LEGISLATION THAT WILL CLOSE THESE NEW LITTLE LOOPHOLES AND FIX THIS NEW SOURCE OF TAX UNFAIRNESS WHEN PEOPLE SAY THE TAX CODE IS WRITTEN IN THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION HAS MADE IT WORSE WHAT I HAVE JUST DESCRIBED IS A TEXTBOOK CASE OF WHAT THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT NO ONE ADDITIONAL POINT NOT LONG AFTER THE NEWS OF THESE NEW TAX LOOPHOLES BROKE THE PRESIDENT WHEN DAVOS DURING AN INTERVIEW THERE HE WAS ASKED WHETHER DURING A SECOND TERM HE WOULD CUT PROGRAMS LIKE MEDICARE MEDICAID AND SOCIAL SECURITY THE PRESIDENT SAID YES HE WOULD

THE PRESIDENT CALLED BACK IN I QUOTE HERE ACTUALLY THE EASIEST OF ALL THINGS SO I'M JUST GIVING YOU A PERFECT SNAPSHOT OF THIS ADMINISTRATION'S POLICIES ROBBING THE WORKING FAMILIES TO PAY OFF SPECIAL INTERESTS AND THOSE AT THE TOP THE PRESIDENT SAYS READING THE SAFETY NET IS A PIECE OF CAKE BUT LET'S MAKE SURE WE KNOW WHAT HE'S TALKING ABOUT HE'S TALKING ABOUT MEDICAID PROGRAM THAT PAYS FOR TWO OUT OF THREE NURSING HOME BEDS IN AMERICA

AND THAT'S TAKEN PLACE IN A COUNTRY WHERE GROWING OLDER IS REALLY EXPENSIVE AND FAMILIES EVEN THOSE WHO SUBSCRIBE AND SAVE THE RUN OUT OF MONEY TO PAY FOR LONG TERM CARE PRESENTS TALKING ABOUT MEDICARE WITHOUT WHICH MILLIONS OF SENIORS WOULD HAVE NO HOPE OF GETTING HIGH QUALITY HEALTH CARE OR AFFORDABLE PRESCRIPTION DRUGS PRESENTS TALKING ABOUT SOCIAL SECURITY WHICH KEEPS AMERICAN WORKERS FROM RETIRING INTO DEPRIVATION AND DESPERATION THE TRUMP BUDGET CUTS IN THOSE PROGRAMS AMOUNT TO MORE THAN ONE POINT FIVE TRILLION DOLLARS CALLING GOES OVER JUST FINE WITH THE BALLROOM CROWD AT MAR A LAGO BUT I'LL TELL YOU IT IS A TERRIFYING PROSPECT FOR THE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF AMERICANS WHO EVERY SINGLE MONTH WALK IN ECONOMIC TIGHT ROPE AND COUNT ON MEDICAID AND MEDICARE AND SOCIAL SECURITY TO BE THERE AS A LIFELINE FOR

ABOUT SIXTY DAYS AFTER THE HOUSE AND CONGRESS PASSED THE ARE A MARYLAND VOTED TO RATIFY THE E R A I HAD BEEN IN THE STATE SENATE FOR FOUR YEARS FIVE YEARS AT THAT POINT TIME

AND I COULD NOT UNDERSTAND WHY WOMEN WERE NOT EQUAL UNDER OUR CONSTITUTION AS IT READ AND HOW SAD IT WAS- THAT- THE CONSCIOUSNESS OF OUR FOUNDERS WHICH WAS EXTRAORDINARILY HIGH FOR THEIR TIME EXTRAORDINARY BUT THEY DIDN'T SAY WE HOLD THESE TRUTHS TO BE SELF EVIDENT THAT ALL HUMAN KIND

ARE CREATED EQUAL IT IS TIME TO ACT IT IS FAR PAST TIME TO ACT AS I SAY MARYLAND FORTY EIGHT YEARS AGO OVERWHELMINGLY SAID ALL OF US ARE EQUAL

AND I WILL TELL YOU WHO DOESN'T THINK THAT EITHER THE PRESIDENT THE UNITED STATES TOMORROW THE HOUSE WILL PASS A RESOLUTION TO REMOVE THE ARBITRARY DEADLINE OF RATIFICATION FOR THE RIGHTS AMENDMENT THEY SHOULD NEED NOT BE ANY TIME LIMIT FOR DOING THE RIGHT THING DOING SO WILL PROVIDE MORE CLARITY THAT THE YEAR I SHOULD BECOME THE TWENTY EIGHTH AMENDMENT

LONG OVERDUE BUT AS I SAID NEVER TOO LATE AND TWENTY TWENTY WOMAN STILL LEARNS ON AVERAGE EIGHTY TWO CENTS TO A MAN'S DOLLAR THAT'S A GOOD DAY THE GAP WIDENS FOR WOMEN OF COLOR MANY WOMEN IN THE WORKFORCE ARE AT RISK OF BEING PLACED ON LEAVE OR BEING FORCED OUT OF THEIR JOBS IF THEY BECOME PREGNANT I DON'T MAY BE DOUBLY SO IF THEY BECOME DOUBLE PRICE

AND MANY REPUBLICAN CONTROLLED STATE LEGISLATORS OR NECK IN LAWS THAT THREATEN REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS OR TAKE AWAY WOMEN'S ACCESS TO HEALTH CARE THESE ARE FORMS OF DISCRIMINATION THAT TESTIFIED TO WHY WE NEED THE ARE A- IN THE CONSTITUTION AS SO MANY HAVE SAID HERE I'VE BEEN PROUD TO SUPPORT THEY ARE

FROM NINETEEN SEVENTY TWO TO THIS VERY DAY USUALLY I GET THINGS DONE MORE QUICKER BUT WITH THIS POWERFUL GROUP BEHIND ME AND ARE BEHIND YOU OKAY BOBBY BLOOD SET UP PROPERLY BECAUSE YOUR WORK HAS BEEN EXTRAORDINARY ALLEN'S MAIL THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOU YOU'RE KEEPING THE FAITH THROUGH THE DECADES THAT YOU HAVE BEEN SUCH A GREAT LEADER IN OUR COUNTRY THIS AS I SAID EARLIER SHOULD HAVE BEEN IN OUR CONSTITUTION FROM THE VERY BEGINNING

SO IS DEAD THERE SO-E LATEST THAT WE KNOW HERE AS THE U S MARSHALL SERVICES TO A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS HAVE BEEN INJURED IN THE SUSPECT IS DEAD IN A SHOOTING THAT HAPPENED THERE IN BALTIMORE THAT'S THE VERY LATEST THAT WE KNOW AT THIS MOMENT WELCOME EVERYONE HERE TO NEWS NOW THAT YOU SO MUCH FOR JOINING US ALWAYS TRYING ALWAYS BRING IN THESE TOP STORIES AND HEADLINES FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY LET'S GO BACK OUT TO DC THOUGH RIGHT NOW WHERE THE U

S TREASURY SECRETARY STEPHEN THE NEW ENGINE IS FIELDING QUESTIONS FROM SENATORS ON THE PRESIDENT TRUMP'S TWENTY TWENTY ONE PROPOSED BUDGET IMAGE OF GROWTH IN VARIOUS DIFFERENT ISSUES WE DO BELIEVE THEY'LL PAY FOR THEMSELVES THAT'S DIFFERENT THAN THE DEFICIT BECAUSE WE HAVE INCREASED GOVERNMENT SPENDING

AND WE CAN'T PAY FOR IT TWICE THANK YOU SILVERMAN ANDERS THANK YOU MISTER- CHAIRMAN AND SECRETARY OF WE'RE WE'RE FACING A **** MOMENT IN OUR REPUBLIC WORD TRUTH IS UNDER ASSAULT- BY PARTITION PEDDLERS OF ALTERNATIVE FACTS TO SEE TO OPS OFF YOU STATE THE TRUTH ATTACK THOSE WHO DARE TO STAND UP AND SPEAK IT AND GUESS LIKE THE PUBLIC ALL IN THE NAME OF POLITICS WERE BLIND ALLEGIANCE TO A SINGLE PERSON IS VALUED OVER FIDELITY TO THE CONSTITUTION

SO I LIKE TO GO OVER A FEW POINTS TODAY- AND CORRECT THE RECORD SO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE- HAVE THE TRUTH BEFORE THEM NOW PRESIDENT TRUMP CLAIMS TO HAVE INHERITED A QUOTE DISASTER OF AN ECONOMY FROM PRESIDENT OBAMA AND HE TAKES CREDIT FOR WHAT HE CALLS AND I QUOTE AN ECONOMIC TURNAROUND OF HISTORIC PROPORTIONS THIS IS HOW LONG HAS THE U S

BEEN POSITIVE GDP GROWTH I IT'S THE LONGEST ARE RUNNING ECONOMIC SCENARIO WE'VE BEEN AND- ABSOLUTELY TRUE GDP WAS POSITIVE FOR THE PAST TEN YEARS GROWING FOR THE FINAL SEVEN YEARS OF PRESIDENT OBAMA'S PRESIDENCY OUT SO IT'S BEEN GROWING FOR THE LAST TEN YEARS INCLUDING THE FINAL SEVEN YEARS OF THE OBAMA PRESIDENCY AT A AND WE CAN BOTH AGREE THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS BEEN IN OFFICE FOR ABOUT THREE YEARS IS THAT CORRECT

THAT WE CAN DEFINITELY AGREE ON OKAY SO THE ECONOMY WAS ALREADY GROWING FOR SEVEN YEARS BEFORE PRESIDENT TRUMP TOOK OFFICE LET'S TALK ABOUT JOBS PRESIDENT TRUMP CLAIMED HE WILL BE QUOTE THE GREATEST JOBS PRESIDENT THAT GOD EVER CREATED CLOSE QUOTES AND HAS REPEATEDLY CRITICIZED PRESIDENT OBAMA'S JOBS RECORD LET'S COMPARE THE LAST THREE YEARS OF THE OBAMA PRESIDENCY TO THE FIRST THREE YEARS OF THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY

CAN YOU GUESS WHO CREATED MORE JOBS I DON'T HAVE THE NUMBERS IN FRONT OF US BUT- WE HAVE CREATED SUBSTANTIALLY MORE JOBS THAN THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION PROJECTED AT THE BEGINNING OF THIS ADMINISTRATION BY A MULTIPLE OF THREE WELL LET'S TALK ABOUT WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED THE ECONOMY GAINED A ONE POINT FIVE MILLION MORE JOBS DURING THE FINAL THREE YEARS OF PRESIDENT OBAMA'S PRESIDENCY THEN THE FIRST THREE YEARS OF THE TRUMP'S PRESIDENCY SO WHILE

PRESIDENT OBAMA AT EIGHT EIGHT POINT ONE MILLION JOBS DURING HIS FINAL THREE YEARS IN OFFICE- THAT IS MORE THAN THE AMOUNT OF JOBS ADDED DURING THE FIRST THREE YEARS OF THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY WHICH IS ROUGHLY ABOUT SIX POINT SIX MILLION SO THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS THAT WHAT WE HAD IS A GROWING ECONOMY GDP WAS GROWING STRENGTH AND DRAMATICALLY OVER THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS BEFORE THIS ADMINISTRATION TOOK OVER MORE JOBS WERE CREATED IN THE FINAL THREE YEARS OF THE PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION THEN WHEN THIS ADMINISTRATION TOOK OVER AND THEN LET'S TALK ABOUT WHAT IT REALLY MEANS TO FAMILIES DURING THE LAST TWO YEARS OF THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION- MEDIAN HOUSEHOLD INCOME INCREASED BY FORTY EIGHT HUNDRED DOLLARS DURING THE FIRST TWO YEARS OF THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION HOUSEHOLD INCOME INCREASED BY LESS THAN A THIRD OF THAT IN FACT MEDIAN HOUSEHOLD INCOME ONLY INCREASED A MERE FIVE HUNDRED AND FIFTY DOLLARS IN TWENTY EIGHTEEN FAR SHORT OF THE FOUR TO NINE THOUSAND DOLLAR GAINS PROMISED BY THIS ADMINISTRATION

SO LET ME RECAP LET'S GET TO THE TRUTH OF THE TRUMP ECONOMY CREATED LESS JOBS AND DELIVERED UNDER A THIRD OF THE EARNINGS TO FAMILIES THEN THE FINAL EATERS OF THE OBAMA PRESIDENCY ALL THE WHILE NEARLY DOUBLING THE DEFICIT TO A TRILLION DOLLARS SO I THINK THERE'S A TRUTH THERE THE TRUTH IS A REAL DISCONNECT BETWEEN WHAT THE ADMINISTRATION IS SAYING AND HOW PEOPLE ARE LIVING BEDROCK MIDDLE CLASS GOALS OF OWNING A HOME SEND YOUR KID TO COLLEGE SAVING ENOUGH FOR RETIREMENT OR JUST A REALITY UNDER THIS ADMINISTRATION'S AKON SO I THINK THAT'S IMPORTANT IS THAT THE RECORD STRAIGHT AND THEN FINALLY- LET ME ASK YOU
