Can You BELIEVE how much the Biden administration plans to spend? I Can’t

Florida Senator Rick Scott, a Republican, recently wrote a scathing letter to the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) regarding President Biden’s $6.8 trillion budget proposal. In the letter, Scott accused the administration of engaging in rampant government spending and criticized Biden’s refusal to focus on debt reduction.

Scott pointed out that the president had a golden opportunity to address the painful situation his policies have created for American families. However, instead of presenting a plan rooted in the reality the nation faces, Biden proposed a $6.8 trillion budget that is 55% more than what was spent in 2019.

The Florida senator went on to rebuke Biden’s budget proposal, noting that it grows the debt to nearly $51 trillion over the next decade, raises taxes on millions of Americans making less than $400,000 per year, and sticks taxpayers with more than $1.3 trillion in annual interest expense by 2033 due to the massive debt he seeks to create.

Scott also criticized the proposal for being a clear and blatant violation of the president’s pledge to spare small businesses and hardworking families from tax hikes.

Scott concluded his letter by urging the OMB director to take a look at his Protect Our Seniors Act for ideas on how to do more for the program and ensure that benefits are protected and preserved both today and in the future.

He also provided a list of prepared committee line of questioning for Young, including whether she believes excessive government spending, especially deficit spending, causes inflation and if the proposal is balanced.

It is clear that Senator Rick Scott is deeply concerned about the Biden administration’s lack of focus on debt reduction and its insistence on supporting reckless spending of taxpayer dollars.

The senator’s letter serves as a wake-up call to the White House that American families are facing the consequences of the administration’s fiscal mismanagement every day. It remains to be seen how the OMB will respond to Scott’s concerns and questions during the upcoming budget hearing.
