oozman Statement on President Biden’s Budget Proposal
WASHINGTON–U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) released the following statement in response to the release of President Biden’s Fiscal Year 2022 Budget:
“The president’s budget is another reminder of how committed his administration is to growing the size and scope of the federal government. This massive $6 trillion spending plan will increase our debt and deficit, raise taxes and give Washington more authority to dictate what happens in our economy and daily lives. Additionally, the president proposes ending the ban on taxpayer dollars funding abortion – an appalling and outrageous decision to violate the consciences of many Arkansans – while also declining to fund our national defense at an adequate level.
“Democrats have told us they prefer not to let a crisis go to waste, and we should believe them. Now, as we’re reopening our country and the economy is rebounding, the Biden administration believes an ebbing crisis is justification enough to pursue its liberal wish-list policy agenda. Despite its insistence that these demands are urgent and will be paid for by only the wealthy, we know better. I will continue to insist that the federal government protect hardworking Americans’ interests and pursue responsible, bipartisan priorities.”
