Your members of congress reacted quickly to President Trump’s federal budget proposal.
Representative Cheri Bustos of Illinois calls the legislation another way the administration is turning its back on rural America.
She says that “Instead of working across the aisle on a budget that’ll lend a helping hand to small towns with struggling economies, President Trump’s proposal stacks the deck against hardworking people who are just trying to get ahead.”
Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley gave a measured response.
The Republican reminded people that the President proposes and Congress disposes.
He promised he would “Carefully scrutinize and assess priorities as the President has with his proposal and work on behalf of Iowans.”
