WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) issued the following statement after President Biden submitted his proposed FY2023 budget to Congress.
“President Biden’s budget is another pipe dream of liberal activism and climate extremism. It spends too much, borrows too much, and taxes too much. All at a time when Americans are struggling to make ends meet under 40-year record high inflation.
“President Biden wants to spend more taxpayer dollars on his green energy schemes instead of increasing American energy production to solve the energy crisis he created. The president’s priorities could not be more out of touch with families in Wyoming and across the country.
“This budget is dead on arrival. Republicans will focus on what Americans care about most: national security, energy security, and economic security. That means tackling inflation, unleashing American energy production, and keeping Americans safe.”
