Smith Statement on Democrat FY21 Blank Check Reconciliation Trigger

WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Budget Committee Republican Leader Jason Smith issued the following statement after House Democrats released their Fiscal Year 2021 budget resolution:

“The sole reason for pushing forward this hastily crafted proposal is to pave the way for a partisan reconciliation package. Democrats are desperate to use this process to achieve any number of policies that will reward special interests while harming America’s working class, increasing the cost of living for American families, destroying jobs, and weakening the economy. It is further evidence that President Biden’s talk of unity is about keeping his party together, not bringing the country together.”
