SBDV 2019-2


                             MINORITY VIEWS

    For the last month, Democrats on this Committee have 
demanded the majority release the budget allocations for each 
of the appropriations bills. We need these figures to 
understand how each appropriations bill fits into the larger 
picture, and whether our work as a whole will meet the needs of 
the American people.
    Simply put, the allocations shortchange middle class 
families and vulnerable people, which is why Democrats stand 
united in opposition.
    The Bipartisan Budget Act reached in March provided for an 
$18 billion increase for both defense and non-defense 
discretionary spending between fiscal years 2018 and 2019. The 
increase in non-defense discretionary spending, which was the 
product of months of negotiation between both parties, was 
intended to fund investments that create jobs, grow the 
economy, and help hardworking families get ahead.
    Yet the Majority devotes a quarter of that increase--nearly 
$5 billion--to the Department of Homeland Security, presumably 
to spend on President Donald Trump's border wall and 
deportation force.
    Not only is such spending a betrayal of our Americans 
values, it is a waste of resources that crowds out needed 
investments across the other appropriations bills. For 
instance, despite increases for both the Commerce-Justice-
Science and Energy and Water bills, the Majority cut the COPS 
Hiring Program, which puts more police in our communities to 
keep us safe, and Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, which 
invests in the clean energy technology that will power our 
future and grow our economy.
    Those cuts come in bills with increased allocations. The 
Majority does not provide a single penny in additional 
resources to the largest non-defense domestic spending bill, 
the Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education 
appropriations bill, which funds so many programs that improve 
the lives and well-being of American families. Providing no 
increase for the Labor-H bill could starve our schools, hurt 
job training and workplace rights protection, jeopardize Pell 
Grants, and limit access to affordable health care, among many 
other ill effects.
    So unless there are dramatic changes, it seems obvious that 
the Majority would rather build President Trump's border wall 
and continue the attacks on immigrant communities than help our 
children, families, and seniors.
    This is a stark contrast to what's happening in the Senate, 
where our counterparts are approaching the entire 
appropriations process, including setting subcommittee 
allocations, in a bipartisan manner. House Republican 
leadership's partisan approach makes timely completion of our 
important work ore difficult.
    We all hear from our constituents that our country has more 
work to do to help families afford quality child care, lower 
the cost of prescription drugs for seniors, safeguard workers' 
pensions, provide the education and job training that workers 
need for a better future, increase stagnant wages, build safe 
and modern infrastructure and roads, and much more that we 
could help accomplish in our bills.
    Sadly, he Majority's allocations do not provide sufficient 
resources to meet any of these priorities, much less all of 
them.
