Scott Statement on President Biden’s 2022 Budget

WASHINGTON—U.S. Senator Tim Scott released the following statement on President Biden’s 2022 budget proposal.

“When then-candidate Joe Biden said he wanted to ‘transform’ the nation, he wasn’t kidding. What was presented to the American people today is the most far-reaching, big-government budget proposal we have seen in decades. Biden has already outlined plans for more than $7 trillion in new spending. To make matters worse, he has proposed $3.4 trillion in tax hikes on workers, family farms, small businesses, and job creators which will slow down the post-COVID recovery.

“Under Republican leadership we passed commonsense policies that left families with more money in their pockets. I am determined to stand up to the Left’s destructive policies that are limiting the American Dream.”
