U.S. Representative Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) released the following statement on President Biden and the Democrats’ nearly $4 trillion tax and spend scheme:

“As Hoosier families face the devastating ramifications of President Biden’s inflation and supply chain crises, President Biden and the Democrats’ socialist tax and spend scheme is astonishingly out of touch with the American people. This big-government behemoth was never intended to help working families grow and succeed – it has always been about securing more control over Americans from cradle to grave. As made clear by this radical scheme, Democrats are focused on grabbing power and deepening Americans’ dependence on welfare without work. From dictating pre-k curriculum and private employers’ paid leave to weaponizing the IRS, Democrats want to have more say over how we live our lives every day.

“Instead of listening to reason or even taking the time to determine how this multitrillion boondoggle will affect our economy, President Biden and the Democrats are doubling down on their socialist scheme. Once again, Speaker Pelosi expects Congress to pass a massive bill to find out what’s in it.

“This tax and spend spree will clear the way for more of the Democrats’ radical agenda. The American people deserve far better, and I will continue to reject this alarming momentum and stand strong for our freedom and individual rights.”

Walorski represents the 2nd Congressional District of Indiana, serving as a member of the House Ways and Means Committee and the Ranking Member of the House Ethics Committee.
