Trump Budget Proposal is 'Cruel,' 'Heartless,' Crist Says

U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist says the budget proposed by President Donald Trump “is fiscally irresponsible and morally repugnant.”

”A budget is a reflection of our principles and this proposal illustrates a complete lack of values. It decimates vital programs – from environmental protections to public education to medical research. It cuts taxes for the very wealthy while leaving the poor, sick, and disabled out in the cold. It doubles down on cruel cuts to Medicaid – despite promising not to touch it. In Pinellas County where 40 percent of our children depend on Medicaid and CHIP for their care, what could be more heartless? This budget is fiscally irresponsible and morally repugnant.

“But while the administration suggests, it is the Congress that ultimately decides funding priorities. We now have the opportunity to work together – like we did last month to keep the government open – to enact a budget more reflective of who we are as a people, one that strengthens, rather than divides, our nation. And one that doesn’t leave behind the ‘least among us’.”

Crist represents Florida’s 13th Congressional District, which includes mid- and south Pinellas County.

3. He's a representative?

Shoot, I missed that. IDK if you can really be relevant again, Charlie. But if you swing far enough left (and you should!), I'm thinking you can. Even in Florida

4. My past comments about Crist are available for everyone to see.

 

They are less than flattering.

I voted for Crist in '16 as he ran against Jolly for a house seat. We unseated a Republican with Crist in my district. It was a gain.
