Editor’s Note: I’ll just point out that a little over a year ago, a Republican president signed a bill that spent nearly twice as much as this one and everyone was for it, even though it was just as unconstitutional as this one and led to the current inflation, along with subsequent unconstitutional spending bills. No, it’s not just the Democrats driving our country into the ground. The Republicans have their hand on the steering wheel too.
The tax and spend policies of the Biden Administration and Democrat controlled Congress is out of control. The latest tax and spend plan from the Democrats is a whopping $3.5 trillion (which is really $5.5 trillion) dollars. Such a massive government spending spree will cause inflation to soar even higher, and will severely hurt low income and middle class families across America. America’s massive deficit spending is not sustainable.
57% don't want to spend a total of $4.7T on infrastructure, climate change & social welfare programs and 72% are concerned it would hurt them directly w/runaway inflation, higher taxes, lower economic growth or negative impacts on their family’s finances. https://t.co/UBdJ5zZ7up

Right now Dems are trying to ram through a $3.5 trillion tax and spend spree that'll fuel even more inflation and add on even more debt.
They're willing to bankrupt our kids' futures for their liberal wish list.

First, @SenSchumer got his $1.2 TRILLION "infrastructure" bill. Now he's pushing MORE taxes to pay for his $5.5 TRILLION reckless tax & spending spree.
Democrats will bankrupt America while raising taxes & driving up inflation just to satisfy @SenSanders & the Squad.

Reps. Scalise and Steel: Democrats’ reckless spending puts America’s economic health in jeopardy
The skyrocketing inflation since Biden has taken office is on pace to crush the middle class
Seemingly limitless spending by President Biden and far-left liberals in Congress has caused inflation to soar leaving ordinary citizens stuck with the bill.
Famed economist Milton Friedman once said that “inflation is taxation without legislation.”
Last month, the cost of living in the United States jumped by the biggest amount since 2008, when we faced a nearly two-year recession following a devastating market crash. On average, consumers are paying more across the board, from eggs at the supermarket to electricity on their monthly energy bill.
Simply put, the skyrocketing inflation since Biden has taken office is on pace to crush the middle class.
Despite the overwhelming evidence that prices are rising faster than paychecks, Democrats are charging ahead with their reckless $3.5 trillion tax-and-spending plan that will disproportionately hurt families with lower incomes. If we want to get people back to work and create more jobs for hard-working Americans, we must return to solutions that safeguard taxpayer dollars and help businesses thrive.
Businesses across the country are struggling to find workers while the Biden administration continues to incentivize unemployment by paying people to stay home.
Locally owned businesses simply cannot compete with the money being handed out by the federal government.
These worker shortages, coupled with inflation, are forcing “mom and pop” stores to raise prices. A staggering 47 percent of small business owners reported raising average selling prices, the highest rating recorded since 1981. That same survey reported that 46 percent of small business owners noted job openings that could not be filled.
“When I went to the store across the street to buy a help wanted sign, they had sold out,” one Long Beach, California restaurant and bar owner told NPR. The combination of inflation and labor shortage has damaged businesses and threatened their ability to stay afloat.
This is the new reality of Joe Biden’s America. As we work to rebuild our economy from the COVID-19 pandemic, this wasteful spending will only set us back and hurt future generations of hard-working Americans.
On top of this, Washington Democrats want to raise our business tax rate higher than Communist China’s and enact policies that make it better to be a foreign company operating in the United States than an American company.
