Smith: House Republicans’ Commitment to America Will Get America Back on Track After Reckless One-Party Democrat Rule

House Budget Committee Republican Leader Jason Smith (MO-08) issued the following statement after House Republicans unveiled the Commitment to America to create an economy that’s strong, a nation that's safe, a future that’s built on freedom, and a government that’s accountable:

“For too long, American families have suffered one crisis after another as a result of the bad policies and reckless spending and taxes enacted by President Biden and Washington Democrats. Whether it’s an unsecure border, runaway inflation, high gas prices, crime in our communities, or a government that too often turns its back on its citizens, House Republicans have a plan to address these crises and others and put America back on the right track,” said House Budget Committee Republican Leader Smith. “From his first day in office when he opened the border and killed the Keystone XL pipeline, President Biden’s policies have failed to respond to the needs and concerns of the American people. Washington Democrats’ $10 trillion spending spree has ignored the pain and uncertainty Americans are experiencing, sparked the worst spike in prices in 40 years, created a labor shortage by paying people not to work, gave “green” welfare to the wealthy and big corporations, while hiring 87,000 IRS agents to conduct more audits on middle-class families. The plan unveiled today by House Republicans will fight back against the failed policies of one-party Democrat rule in Washington, restore freedom, safety, and strength to America and American communities while holding government accountable.”
