RSC Chairman Jim Banks’ Statement on Democrats’ Historic Spending Bill
Washington, August 12, 2021
WASHINGTON—Today, RSC Chairman Jim Banks (IN-03) released the following statement in response to Democrats’ $3.5 trillion spending proposal:
“Joe Biden and Congressional Democrats are inflaming disasters that they created. Thanks to their spending-fueled inflation, Americans’ paychecks have effectively been slashed. What’s Democrats’ plan? Spend another $3.5 trillion. Our border is overwhelmed, so they’re pushing for the largest amnesty in history. Gas prices have skyrocketed, and they want the Green New Deal.
Democrats have given up on solutions to improve peoples’ lives and their own chances in 2022. Instead, they’re launching a kamikaze bomb of far-left programs that will blow a hole in America’s finances, decimate the dollar, and destroy the rule of law and the American way of life. Congressional Democrats are trying to inflict damage on their way out.”
