FreedomWorks Statement in Response to President Biden’s $6 Trillion Budget Proposal for Fiscal Year 2022

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to the $6 trillion budget proposal for FY 2022 announced by President Biden today, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:

“The term ‘fiscally irresponsible’ doesn’t even begin to cover it. ‘Intentional malice’ is more appropriate. President Biden is sacrificing our nation’s future for his own political expediency, enabled by profligate spenders from all around.

“If the last year has shown us anything, it is that governments at all levels are far too large. Another $6 trillion for programs that will spiral our nation into fiscal oblivion, like the ‘American Jobs Plan,’ a healthcare ‘public option,’ radical environmentalism, and expanded welfare, is sadly unsurprising.

“From obvious immediate effects such as inflation and lack of confidence in our dollar, to longer term threats like across-the-board insolvency and default, this budget proposal puts us further on the fast track to disaster.”
