"This is not a vision for recovering stronger from this pandemic, it’s an attempt to use a global crisis to put government in control of almost every aspect of our lives.”
"Over the past 18 months, we’ve spent more than $5 trillion responding to the coronavirus pandemic. Now Democrat congressional leaders propose to pass the largest single spending bill in history with no regard to rising inflation, crippling debt, or the inevitability of future crises."
“Blackouts, unaffordable electricity bills, tax hikes, entire American industries and jobs destroyed, no hope to cure diseases, long lines of the sick begging the government for lifesaving treatments, and weak American defenses against our adversaries like China and Russia."
“Friday’s markup was a disastrous sham from start to finish, and my Democrat colleagues should be ashamed of their complete disregard of process and decorum. Democrats refused to adequately address the implications of President Biden’s many tax proposals, and ultimately, farm families will end up footing the bill for this reckless spending package. The message couldn’t be clearer—President Biden, Speaker Pelosi, and Congressional Democrats are perfectly fine leaving rural America in the dust.”
"The Biden administration and its allies are asking Americans to pay for their failed programs twice: once with taxes from workers’ personal paychecks and again at gas pumps and grocery stores."
"In their reporting on the Democrats’ socialist spending bill, the New York Times said it would 'touch virtually every American’s life, from conception to aged infirmity.'"
benefit of the committee process, we fear that it will be the lobbyists and special interests who will have written a multi-trillion package rather than the people’s elected representatives.”
“This monstrous spending package recklessly increases what was already the highest sustained spending spree in American history. It asks taxpayers, their children, and grandchildren to pay for radical socialist proposals that will harm our economy now and obliterate economic prosperity in the future."
There’s no such thing as a free lunch, and there’s no getting around the costs associated with government spending.
