More on Tax Relief
WASHINGTON - Today, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 5376, also known as President Biden's "Build Back Better" agenda. Congressman Bruce Westerman (R-AR) released the following statement:
It has been a busy week on Capitol Hill as lawmakers wait to vote on the $1.2 trillion infrastructure legislation, which is intricately tied to the $4.3 trillion reconciliation package. To pave the way for the massive spending packages that total over $5,000,000,000,000, Democrats voted, in a completely political move, to suspend the debt limit until just after the mid-term elections in 2022. This allows Democrats to completely pass the buck and avoid telling the American people how much each of us owe to cover the Democrats’ massive spending priorities.
Democrats may think of themselves as modern-day Robin Hoods--taking from the rich to give to the poor--but as they have their way, Arkansas businesses and families are seeing the equivalency of a tax hike in a very sneaky way: through inflation.
To put it simply, Democrats are on a spending spree that hardworking Americans cannot afford.
