Hartzler Rejects Measure to Fund Democrat’s Socialist Spending Spree
(Washington, DC) – Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler released the following statement on her opposition to House Democrats legislation to extend government funding to December while raising the nation’s debt ceiling until November of 2022.
“Nancy Pelosi’s decision to attach a debt ceiling increase to a routine extension of government funding puts us on a path towards another government shutdown. The Speaker expects the Congress to provide Democrats a blank check for trillions of dollars in new socialist spending, which will be rammed through Congress on a partisan basis later this year. I am not doing that.
Democrats have already put us further in debt as a nation by nearly $2 trillion since taking control. Now they are proposing spending $4.5 trillion more with infrastructure and their reconciliation bill and who knows what additional spending schemes are in the works. I refuse to give Nancy Pelosi a blank check. Americans cannot afford even more inflation reducing their wages. Enough is enough.”
