WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement on the Budget and Economic Outlook report issued by the Congressional Budget Office today:

“The Congressional Budget Office's ten-year budget and economic outlook demonstrates the scope of the fiscal challenges we will face after the current crisis has passed.  Years of Republican irresponsibility, including their $2 trillion tax cut for the wealthy, left us woefully ill-prepared for an emergency of the scale presented by the COVID-19 pandemic's economic fallout.  Responding to that crisis must remain our first priority and then we can tackle the most pressing issues facing our country with bold policies that meet the moment while restoring sound, long-term fiscal management.”
