Washington, D.C. (March 28, 2022)— Today, President Biden released his fiscal year (FY) budget request for 2023.
“I would call Biden’s 2023 budget more of the same, but it’s not, it’s more of the worst. This FY budget builds on the worst economic parts of Biden’s failed first year. It fails to confront our growing debt and will only increase reckless spending. We have the highest inflation in 40 years causing Americans to suffer, but instead of reining in spending Biden wants to double down, adding $72.7 billion in spending over the next ten years. Even Biden’s own budget documents show an increase to the national deficit of $14.4 trillion over the next decade. Biden should be focused on lowering costs for everyday Americans by combatting inflation, reducing the deficit, and empowering domestic energy production. Instead, he’s leaving them behind to appease the far left with climate ideology and another tax and spend agenda that will only increase inflation.”
