WASHINGTON—U.S. Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) released the following statement after President Biden’s address to a joint session of Congress.
“It’s hard to live within a budget and much easier to spend money like there’s no tomorrow. Unfortunately, the President has a lot of things he’d like to do, but he’s spending like crazy. In his first 100 days, he has proposed six trillion dollars of new spending. That is a modern record. To put that in context, six trillion dollars is about four times our total federal budget. That is an amazing amount of money, and it has the potential of jeopardizing our kids’ future and burdening them with decades of interest costs.
“When you get down to the kinds of policies that unite the country, the President says he wants unity, but it’s impossible to unify America if you’re only appealing to the liberal wing of your own party. So let’s get back to the job of bipartisan governing. I hope he will do that, and we Republicans are ready to work with him.”
