Congressman Bennie Thompson

Representing the District of Mississippi

How will President Trump's proposed budget affect Mississippians?

June 2, 2017

“President Trump’s budget is perhaps the most damaging proposal for rural America that we have ever seen,” said Thompson.  “The Trump budget seeks to eliminate the Low Income Energy Assistance Program, the Rural Business and Cooperative Service, the Rural Water and Waste Disposal Program and the Single Family Housing Direct Loans Program.  President Trump also reneged on his promise to not cut Medicaid.  It is clear that President Trump has turned his back on rural America.”   Click here to find out how the proposed budget will affect Mississipians and click here see  proposed buget.
