President Trump’s Budget Puts American Taxpayers First


Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots President and co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today, reacting to the White House releasing the President’s 2018 budget.

“Tea Party activists and grassroots conservatives appreciate that President Donald Trump and his administration are taking to heart their promise to ‘Drain the Swamp’ by constructing a budget based on the needs and expectations of the American taxpayer and not the impulses of bureaucrats and special interests in Washington, DC. It is not a perfect budget – if passed, it would balance in 10 years rather than five years, as advocated by Tea Party Patriots – but it fundamentally breaks with previous Administrations of both parties by focusing on the American taxpayer first rather than the political benefits desired by politicians and lobbyists.  The time of wasting the American taxpayer’s hard-earned dollars is over, this helps chart the course to getting us back to fiscal sanity and solvency. The grassroots are ready to work with President Trump, his team and Congress to pass a budget that will both put the American people first and ensure future generations are not saddled with debt because of the excesses of the political class in Washington.”
