Hoyer Discusses President Trump's Budget Proposal on CNBC's Power Lunch

Today’s GOP quote of the day comes from Rep. Mike Simpson (R-ID), who slammed the Trump Administration’s budget for the draconian cuts it’s expected to make. From Politico:

"This is Mulvaney's budget… Like I want to go home after having voting [sic] against Meals on Wheels and say, 'Oh it's a bad program, keeping seniors alive.' There's just some of the stuff in here that doesn't make any sense. ... Frankly, you can't pass these budgets on the floor."
