Romney Statement on President Biden’s Budget

WASHINGTON—U.S. Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) today released a statement following the release of President Biden’s FY2024 budget:

“President Biden’s proposed budget is designed to satisfy his base, not to actually become law. Raising corporate taxes would cause companies and good jobs to leave America, as they have in the past. Rather than aggressively beefing up the number of border agents and drug enforcement personnel to counter the fentanyl crisis, he balloons the number of IRS agents. And while talking tough about China, he allows our Navy to fall even further behind. Let’s put the President’s political foray aside and work on a bipartisan plan that can become law and that will work for America.”
