Barrasso: Democrat Spending Bill Will Meet a Buzz Saw of Resistance in the Senate

November 19, 2021

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-WY), ranking member of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources (ENR), issued the following statement after the Democrats’ reckless tax and spending bill passed the House of Representatives.

“House Democrats’ reckless tax and spending spree will meet a buzz saw of resistance in the Senate,” said Barrasso. “Gas prices, heating bills, and grocery costs are all skyrocketing, and the Democrats are determined to make inflation much worse by spending trillions of taxpayer dollars. Their plan includes billions of dollars to hire an army of IRS agents, gives millionaires in New York and California a massive tax cut, and sticks families in Wyoming with the bill.

“Democrats want to kill the abundant and affordable energy Wyoming produces. This dangerous legislation is a massive down payment on the punishing Green New Deal. This winter, if the Democrats get their way, families in Wyoming will have to choose whether to heat or to eat.

“Senate Republicans are united in our efforts to plunge a stake through the heart of this Democrat disaster.”
