Foxx Blasts Democrats’ Reckless Spending Package
WASHINGTON, D.C., September 8, 2021
Today, Education and Labor Committee Republican Leader Virginia Foxx (R-NC) issued the following statement after Education and Labor Democrats unveiled their piece of President Biden’s $3.5 trillion partisan spending package:
“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. With this bill, Democrats are steamrolling the legislative process, American people, and rights of Republican Members to expand federal power and advance liberal special interests.
“Congressional Democrats could empower individuals and entrepreneurs to make the financial, professional, educational, and parental decisions that work best for them. Instead, Democrats are pushing an irresponsible spending scheme that will double down on the inflation crisis and allow the federal government to infringe on Americans’ liberties.”
