The U.S. Senate concluded a 14-hour session on a budget resolution that included a number of radical votes by Senate Democrats as they prepare to vote on the nearly $5 trillion budget resolution. These votes would:
- Support the largest tax hike in U.S. history.
- Keep children out of the classroom this fall.
- Cut taxes for the rich in blue states.
- Threaten American energy independence.
- Fund abortions with taxpayer money.
Statement from NRSC Chairman Rick Scott: “The Democrats plan to do untold harm to our nation’s economy, security, and values with an unnecessarily reckless tax-and-spending bill. They chose to vote against a number of commonsense Republican amendments that would help protect our economy, secure our border and communities, support our children’s education, promote American energy independence, and uphold the sanctity of life. There is simply no excuse for Senate Democrats’ obstruction to these amendments and that is why they are rapidly losing the trust of the American people. These votes will be on the ballot in 2022 and Democrats are on the wrong side of all of them.”
