Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), a member of the Senate Budget Committee, today issued the following statement after President Biden announced his Fiscal Year 2022 budget proposal.

“It’s one of the oldest tricks in the Washington playbook: wait until Friday afternoon before a three-day holiday weekend to put out bad news, and hope the American people don’t notice. This strategy tells us all we need to know about President Biden’s budget proposal.

“Unfortunately, this budget proposal is months late and rather than addressing our unsustainable national debt, it exacerbates it by proposing the highest sustained levels of federal spending since World War II. This budget is the same as his other proposals thus far; a liberal wish list of exorbitant spending and job-killing tax hikes. All Americans would pay the price for policies that would lead to reduced economic growth, lower wages and fewer jobs.”
