Statement on the Republican Budget Proposal,
April 7, 2000

This new Republican budget combines bad fiscal policy and a flawed economic strategy. It undermines our efforts to strengthen Social Security and Medicare, makes it harder to pay off the debt, and rests on dramatic cuts in education, law enforcement, the environment, and efforts to promote peace in national security.

I remain committed to working with any Member of Congress from either party on a budget that will strengthen Social Security and Medicare, add a prescription drug benefit, eliminate the debt by 2013, expand access to health coverage through Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program, and strengthen education and other key investments. Let’s put this empty political document aside and work together to keep America on a responsible fiscal course that meets our Nation’s long-term challenges.
