Rep. Steel: “Trillions in new spending is not the solution our nation needs”

April 30, 2021

(April 28, 2021) Washington, D.C. – Rep. Michelle Steel (CA-48) released the below statement following President Joe Biden’s address to Congress this evening:  

"Proposing trillions in new spending while a crisis rages at the southern border and kids are still not back in the classroom is not the solution our nation needs as we continue fighting back against the COVID-19 pandemic. Americans’ paychecks are not a limitless piggy bank for the Biden Administration to fund their trillion-dollar spending spree. The President is proposing massive tax increases that would cost the U.S. economy more than 1 million jobs. This comes at a time when we should be working together to get the economy back on track and get people back to work, not making paychecks smaller and business more expensive."
