WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Scott Fitzgerald (WI-05) issued the following statement after Democrats voted to take the first step in passing their multi-trillion-dollar budget reconciliation and passed their partisan infrastructure bill which spends only a fraction of funds on fixing roads, bridges, and major projects that the American people generally consider infrastructure:
“Speaker Pelosi and her party are in disarray yet again. Members of Congress received over 2,000 pages of legislative text for the multi-trillion-dollar budget reconciliation just a day ago. There is no Congressional Budget Office estimate to indicate the cost of this legislation, so once again Speaker Pelosi has dragged her caucus along with the promise that they must pass the bill before they can find out what’s in it.
“It is unconscionable how little regard Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats have for taxpayer dollars. If we thought inflation was bad now, then we better buckle up because it’s about to get a lot worse.
“The Democrat party needs to reign in their out-of-control spending, the American people cannot afford the debt of their socialist agenda.”
