Palmer Opposes Bloated Democrat Budget Resolution

August 11, 2021

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Gary Palmer (AL-06), Chairman of the House Republican Policy Committee, released the following statement after passage of a $3.5 trillion dollar budget resolution by Democrats in the Senate.

“President Joe Biden and the Democrats in Washington seem to be fixated on breaking inflation records they have already set. This $3.5 trillion dollar budget framework will accelerate inflation that has resulted in higher prices Americans are paying for gas and food just as the country is experiencing a record level of job openings that continue to go unfilled,” said Chairman Palmer.

Palmer continued, “The headlines may paint Senate passage of this partisan budget boondoggle as a ‘win’ for President Biden, but it is a loss for the average worker. Even though wages have gone up, the average worker is now earning 2 percent less than what they earned a year ago because of inflation. The House must stop this reckless spending that is hurting American workers and their families and that threatens to undermine the future of our nation.”
