Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene made her feelings known on what her office calls the “Democrat Communist Agenda.” Greene implored members of the U.S. House to vote against funding the agenda.

“The American people are $29 trillion in debt,” she said. “Thanks to Congress. And this Congress wants to borrow more money and more time to figure out how to run the government and how to pay for it. That is an outrage to the American people.”

Greene said courage and responsibility is learning how to manage people’s money.

“The people work hard every single day, they have to pay the taxes and then they have to trust this House, this body, and the Senate to create a budget but every single time it’s a budget that puts them further and further in debt,” she said. “The audacity of Congress to borrow more money and not be able to come up with a budget that makes sense and that we can pay for. What an outrage. What an irresponsibility.

“That isn’t courage. That is not responsibility. That is out of control behavior that this Congress needs to reign in. This government should be shut down.”

Greene added the people in Congress cannot control themselves and do not understand how to balance a checkbook.

“The people in here do not deserve, deserve the responsibility on how to spend the American people’s money,” she said. “Do not pass the CR. Shut it down.”
