Palmer Opposes Biden’s Bloated $6 Trillion Budget Proposal

May 28, 2021

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Gary Palmer (AL-06), Chairman of the House Republican Policy Committee, issued the following statement after the release of President Biden's first budget proposal that would spend a record high of $6 trillion in FY 2022 and, according to the New York Times, "would take the United States to its highest sustained levels of federal spending since World War II."

"Biden's budget, and the Democrat policies it represents, will be disastrous for our country. American families will be left with even higher levels of inflation and dramatic increases in taxes that would barely pay the interest on the debt this proposal would create," said House Republican Policy Committee Chairman Gary Palmer. "Our current national debt is more than $28 trillion dollars and this budget would increase that amount at least $13 trillion over the next decade. The path President Biden is proposing will only end in pain for American families.

Palmer continued, "Congress answered the call and provided relief to Americans during the pandemic. Now, as COVID-19 pandemic subsides across the country, it is time to confront the pandemic of reckless spending by the Biden Administration and the Democrat majorities in the House and Senate. Republicans in Congress are working to achieve that goal, I wish President Biden and Washington Democrats were interested in doing the same."
