If budgets are statements of our values, Trump’s are clear; what about California?

"Over the past 20 years, we have dramatically increased the percent of our budget invested in prisons and reduced the percent invested in new colleges and universities. Now we have students who are homeless because they cannot afford a place to live, and who graduate saddled with college debt for years. President Trump’s budget is a clear statement of his values. I do not believe it is reflective of what the majority of Californians believe. If budgets are statements of values, California must do better. We need a budget that puts children and families first."
