FreedomWorks Statement in Response to President Biden’s Bloated Discretionary Budget Request

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to President Biden’s $1.5 trillion discretionary budget request for Fiscal Year 2022, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:

“Here we have yet another example of Biden’s New Deal to fully transition America into a social welfare state that undermines our country’s essential virtues of freedom and independence.

“Instead of promoting individualism and free enterprise, this new budget request aims to grow social programs, mandate climate change policy in unrelated issue areas, and arbitrarily inject social justice and ‘woke’ causes across the board–where the federal government has no place meddling.

“On the heels of a newly-enacted $1.9 trillion ‘COVID relief’ package and a $2.5 trillion proposed ‘infrastructure’ plan, President Biden is proposing another $1.5 trillion in spending, which recklessly sends us further into fiscal insolvency and leaves our taxpayers on the hook for generations to come.”
