The GOP isn’t waiting for Democrats to get to work, they are stepping up and proposing solutions to the nation’s biggest problem: the budget crisis. House Republicans recently revealed their answer to Joe Biden’s massive 2022 budget proposal.
“The sovereign debt crisis will not only compromise the national security of the greatest nation in the world, it will jeopardize our freedoms, our prosperity and our way of life,” asserted Rep. Jody Arrington (R-Texas).
In their 2022 budget proposal, the Republican Study Committee (RSC), lead by Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.), drafted a letter to all Americans outlining the damage done by the Democrats in just the few short months they have held the majority.
The RSC pointed out, so far, lawmakers have added more than $4.7 trillion to the national debt through legislation spurred by the pandemic. For comparison, it took 219 years, from the founding of our nation in 1776 until 1995, to accumulate that amount of federal debt.
During a press conference for the budget’s unveiling, Rep. Greg Steube (R-Fla.) made clear that the proposal would adhere to American values and balance the budget.
“Aside from producing a budget that cuts taxes and balances the budget in five short years, we showcase our conservative values,” stated the Florida lawmaker. “Including initiatives to support pro-life efforts, protect our Second Amendment and commit to securing our border.”
