For Democrats like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who may not know their colleagues, here’s some helpful information about who’s leading their party on the House Budget Committee:
- Congressman John Yarmuth currently serves as the Chairman of the House Budget Committee. As Chairman, Rep. Yarmuth is tasked with basic responsibilities that include completing a budget.
- Due to divisions ripping House Democrats apart, Chairman Yarmuth recently confirmed that his committee would not release or mark up a budget.
- While Chairman Yarmuth doesn’t think completing a budget is in the cards, he’s shifting his focus to repealing parts the GOP tax cut bill that provided relief to American families for the first time in more than 30 years.
Bottom line: Rep. Ocasio-Cortez might not know who Chairman Yarmuth is, but rest assured, he’s playing as big a role as anyone in enabling the House Democrats’ socialist agenda.
