FreedomWorks Statement in Response to the House “Passage” of the Budget Resolution

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to the House Democrats passing the FY 2022 Budget Resolution through a “deem and pass” procedure, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:

“House Democrats are sinking to new lows in order to pass their ridiculous tax and spending spree. Using a self-executing rule to pass a budget resolution is the absolute antithesis of proper budgetary process. When statutory rules are ignored and deliberation quashed, bad policy is always the result.

“Today’s actions demonstrate the continued mockery that Democrats are making out of our legislative process, and, unfortunately, taxpayers will be the ones suffering the consequences from their carelessness. On process alone, House Republicans should stand united against Speaker Pelosi’s ploy to railroad the Budget Resolution through the House.”
