U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), known as the Senate’s leading foe of government waste, issued the following statement with regard to President Biden’s $6 trillion proposed budget:

“President Biden’s budget can be summed up like this: higher taxes, higher spending, higher debt.

“As much as the Administration would like to convince the American people otherwise, money does not grow on trees and nothing is free. From increasing spending to the highest levels since WWII to keeping the Pentagon’s budget near stagnant as our nation faces new threats around the globe, this plan is radically out of touch with the American people. President Biden’s budget is a bust for taxpayers and a boon for D.C. bureaucrats and tax collectors.”
