Press Release

WASHINGTON—Today, the Blue Dog Coalition Co-Chair for Communications, Rep. Lou Correa (CA-46), issued the following statement in response to President Trump’s budget proposal:


“In the first four months of this fiscal year, the budget deficit increased by 77 percent. The national debt is now over $22 trillion, a troubling and unprecedented amount. Developing a budget that is right for America should not be done in a partisan way, and both parties should work together. In this era of divided government, the only way we will be able to resolve our fiscal problem is to pursue fiscally-responsible, bipartisan solutions. As Blue Dogs, we look forward to working with our Republican and Democratic colleagues to find a long-term, comprehensive solution that responsibly balances America’s budget and puts our country on a fiscally-sustainable path. Our children and grandchildren are depending on us to make the right decisions and get this done.”
