During a hearing Tuesday on President Trump’s fiscal year 2019 budget proposal, U.S. Senator Mike Enzi of Wyoming, and Chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, said Americans deserve a serious budget that addresses the nation’s fiscal priorities while curbing the national debt.

Enzi said that one of his greatest concerns is our country’s national debt, a figure that now eclipses $20 trillion. He said that to secure our economy, particularly for future generations, we must tackle this growing problem. He added that while lowering taxes is proving to bolster our economy, which will bring in new revenue, we must more closely examine the spending priorities and habits of the federal government.

Enzi and other committee members addressed their comments to Mick Mulvaney, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, who provided testimony and answered questions about the president’s budget proposal.
