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

It's not real. And frankly, my first thoughts were mirrored by almost every Republican who made a comment on the budget, this is not a real document, it is not a real offer, it's not a starting point.

Morning Round Up: 'Budget Hits His Own Voters the Hardest' Edition

Another day, another #BrokenPromise from President Trump. In fact, his budget breaks a lot of promises he made to the American people – most importantly, the promise that he is fighting for them. Instead, they get a budget that harms working Americans in order to give a huge tax cut to the wealthiest. Here is a look at the coverage so far:

GOP Quote of the Day: You Can't Pass These Budgets

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."
