WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, issued the following statement in response to the Biden administration releasing the details of its plan to raise taxes and spend trillions.
“The tax-and-spend Democrats are back. The plan President Biden unveiled today is an out-of-control socialist spending spree,” said Barrasso.
“This proposal starts with the punishing policies of the Green New Deal and builds back worse from there. It will hike taxes and spend trillions of dollars on the left’s radical agenda.
“Democrats are offering to hamstring the economy with higher energy bills and higher taxes for families in Wyoming and across the country. Republicans want to protect our energy dominance, and let hardworking Americans keep the money they earned. President Biden should change course and look to our bipartisan highway bill from the last Congress if he is really interested in improving our infrastructure.”
