Democrats' Reckless Taxing-And-Spending Spree Would Hurt Families And Help China


Leader McConnell: ‘Hurting Families And Helping China. It's A Perfect Policy Storm That Would Stick Working Americans With Higher Prices, Higher Taxes, Fewer Jobs, And Less Freedom… While Also Putting America At A Global Disadvantage'

SENATE REPUBLICAN LEADER MITCH McCONNELL (R-KY): “Behind closed doors, [Democrats are] putting together another, even more reckless taxing and spending spree. They want to take the last bill, which Democrats called the most left-wing law in American history, and dwarf even that. Massive tax hikes on Americans that will hurt families and help China. A socialist transformation that nobody voted for. Another invitation for even for more painful inflation that will hit working Americans where it hurts. The American people don't want it. And Senate Republicans won't support it.” (Sen. McConnell, Remarks, 9/22/2021)

  • LEADER MCCONNELL: “This unified [Democratic] government is behind closed doors brainstorming ways to make inflation even more painful for American families. Their next reckless taxing and spending spree is packed with radical, left-wing policies and the biggest tax hike on the American people in half a century. So far, the bill is more than 2,400 pages long. But it can be summarized in just four words: Hurts families… helps China.” (Sen. McConnell, Remarks, 10/04/2021)

LEADER MCCONNELL: “The American people continue to hear about a steady stream of bad ideas that Washington Democrats are packing into their next reckless taxing and spending spree. There's one clear thread that ties them all together: Pain for American families, and profit for our adversaries. Hurting families and helping China. It's a perfect policy storm that would stick working Americans with higher prices, higher taxes, fewer jobs, and less freedom… while also putting America at a global disadvantage.” (Sen. McConnell, Remarks, 9/29/2021)

LEADER MCCONNELL: “The reckless taxing and spending spree that Democrats are writing behind closed doors is designed to leave Americans with a socialist country they never voted for. A country that working families, in many ways, would barely recognize. … Our Democratic colleagues cannot pretend that massive, transformational policy changes are mere budgetary tweaks. … They want to interfere massively with the states that chose not to bow to Obamacare mandates on Medicaid. They want to use healthcare dollars to line the pockets of special interests with big union giveaways. And they want to impose socialist price controls on Americans' medicines that would leave us with fewer new treatments and new cures in the future. It all adds up to a massive leap towards socialized medicine. But somehow this still only scratches the surface. Democrats are also trying to force through an unprecedented federal takeover of American families' childcare options that may leave faith-based childcare providers high and dry. They want an all-out assault on affordable, reliable, homegrown American energy — so the entire country can be marched toward California utility prices, California gas prices, and California electricity blackouts. Just what families want. I could go on all day. The reckless taxing and spending spree that Democrats are writing behind closed doors is shaping up to be exactly what they promised: An effort to exploit this terrible but temporary pandemic as a Trojan horse for permanent socialism.” (Sen. McConnell, Remarks, 9/20/2021)
