Rep. Fudge Statement on the President's "Executive Order Reducing Poverty in America by Promoting Opportunity and Economic Mobility"


WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Marcia L. Fudge (OH-11) issued the following statement regarding today’s issuance of the President’s Executive Order calling for a sweeping review of earned benefits and federal safety net programs.

“Once again, this Administration has released another attack on the poor disguised as a plan to promote opportunity. The President, who claims to represent every American, chooses to balance the budget on the backs of the needy. First there was DACA, then there were tax cuts for the rich and corporations, and now there is this Executive Order. It is nothing but a sham and beneath the dignity of the Office of the President.”
