GOP Blasts Biden’s Bloated Budget, Promises Better

(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) In response to President Joe Biden‘s potentially disastrous budget plan stuffed with upwards of $5-trillion in new tax hikes and a huge pay increase for federal employees, Republicans in Congress vowed to push their own alternative budget in the coming weeks.

Three top House Republicans released a joint statement accusing President Biden of using his annual budget proposal to advance his private political agenda, Fox News reported.

“President Joe Biden’s budget is a reckless proposal doubling down on the same Far Left spending policies that have led to record inflation and our current debt crisis,” wrote Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., Majority Leader Steve Scalise, R-La., and GOP Conference Chair Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y.

According to the Republican leaders, Biden and the Democrats are intent on spending the nation into oblivion.

“This is a spending problem, not a revenue problem. Yet President Biden’s unserious budget proposal includes trillions in new taxes that families will pay directly or through higher costs,” they said.

House Republicans vowed to resist Biden’s massive spending plan.

“In the coming weeks, House Republicans will put forward a budget that actually works toward getting our fiscal house in order by reining in out-of-control spending and putting us on a path to balance,” Rep. Ben Cline, R-Va., said.

Sen. Eric Schmitt, R-Mo., noted that there would be similar resistance to Biden’s plan in the Senate.

“Any budget request that focuses on tax hikes and more spending rather than cutting spending and easing the economic burden on this country is deeply unserious – this budget doesn’t have an ounce of serious proposals in it. The federal government doesn’t have a revenue problem, it has a spending problem,” Schmitt noted.
