Daines Statement on Democrats’ $3.5 Trillion Budget Resolution

U.S. SENATE —U.S. Senator Steve Daines made the following statement after Senate Democrats announced a massive $3.5 trillion spending plan with major tax increases: 

“Just yesterday, Montana families woke up to more disastrous news on inflation, which is at a 13-year high, and they are quickly being priced out of affording everyday necessities like food and gasoline. Democrats are foolish to think a massive $3.5 trillion tax and spend plan will help Montana families. Montanans don’t want bigger government and bigger government is not the answer. They want to keep their hard-earned dollars and they want those dollars to be worth something at the end of the day. Democrats and President Biden are on a reckless path that will squander our economic recovery and leave Montana families worse off.”
