Scott Statement on Democrats’ Latest Spending Spree

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.) released the following statement after voting against the Democrats’ latest big-government spending package.

“Today, Democrats once again tried to spend their way out of the inflation caused—ironically—by their reckless spending. With inflation raging and our economy heading into a recession, Democrats still chose to spend money we don’t have on things Americans don’t need—and didn’t ask for. Make no mistake: this bill will increase tax burdens on generations of Americans. That’s why I voted ‘no’ and will continue fighting against Democrats’ economic plans that put the American Dream further out of reach for families across our nation.”
