Wednesday, U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) joined a group of Republican senators to discuss Democrats’ latest $3.5 trillion tax-and-spend proposal and the rising cost of living.
“We have not seen this level of price increases… on this sort of magnitude since 2008. And now there’s a 3.5 trillion dollar piece of legislation in the pipeline, and it’ll fund not productive investments in things like productive infrastructure and training and education that actually lead to prices and wages stabilizing over a period of time, but instead, there are priorities like civilian climate corps, priorities like electric vehicle rebates. Things that frankly don’t resonate across the heartland very much.
“Now I know President Biden has assured us that this bout of inflation as we undergo this massive fiscal experiment, is gonna be temporary. That’s easy for the president to say. He doesn’t have to gas up his car. He doesn’t have to replace household appliances when they go out as my constituents do. So, we are seeing these problems manifest every weekend when I head home. My family is dealing with it, just as all other Hoosier families are,” said Senator Young.
