U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines today delivered remarks at the weekly Republican Senate Leadership press conference highlighting the continued destruction “Bidenomics” is having on American families and demanded the Biden administration stop their out-of-control government spending.
“President Biden spent the month of August telling a very different story to the American people than what we are seeing back home with the people that elect us to come back here to Washington.
“Don’t take my word for it, as Joe Biden’s trying to spin this Bidenomics story, look at the headlines that have come out in publications from your colleagues in the press. ‘The housing market is stuck. Americans can’t afford homes. Investors aren’t buying property. Economists see little relief ahead.’ New York Post, ‘Credit Card and Car Loan Default Hit a Ten-Year High as Inflation Squeezes Families.’ This came out in Forbes just yesterday, in fact, as I was flying in from Montana. ‘Strapped for Cash. More Americans Are Making Early Withdrawals From Their Retirement Savings.’
And you’ve seen the headlines in the last month about credit card debt at over $1 trillion, an all-time, record high. And now we’ve got new information that says our deficits are going to exceed $2 trillion. To put that in perspective, our deficit over the next year will be larger than the GDP of every country but 10 in the world. This is a direct result of what’s happened with what we’ve seen with President Biden and their spending spree. It’s unacceptable.
“But the reality in Joe Biden’s America versus what Americans are actually seeing are completely disconnected. It’s time for the administration to reverse course on its out-of-control spending.”
