WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, today issued the following statement on President Biden’s FY2024 budget request to Congress.
“President Biden’s bloated budget reveals how out-of-touch he is with families in Wyoming and across the country. This president wants to raise taxes on hardworking families so he can fund his reckless, radical spending.
“Democrats’ reckless spending spree sent costs to a 40-year high. Record-high prices for gas and groceries have made it harder for families to keep up. Now, Joe Biden wants to spend even more. Instead of lowering costs, the president is raising taxes. Joe Biden is doubling down on the disastrous policies that are causing families to fall further and further behind.
“Joe Biden and the Democrats must stop wasting taxpayer dollars. President Biden’s bloated budget is dead on arrival.”
