Young Votes to Advance President Trump’s Bipartisan Budget Deal

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) today voted for President Trump’s bipartisan budget deal that provides funding certainty for our armed forces and ensures our military readiness. The deal passed the Senate on an 67-28 vote.

“As a Marine, I am committed to protecting our troops and ensuring they have the resources needed to keep our country safe and secure. We are facing growing threats from Russia and China and our enemies abroad, and we have a humanitarian and national security crisis at our southern border. President Trump’s bipartisan budget deal provides the critical resources that our service members need to protect themselves and our country.

“Our military and our national security cannot afford a return to Obama era defense budgets. Without this budget deal, our military would face going back to a time when Marines were borrowing parts off of museum aircraft and the Air Force was digging in the aircraft boneyard to keep jets flying. Bottom line, we do not want our men and women in the armed services to be vulnerable – that’s why I voted for this budget,” said Senator Young.
