Brady: Biden’s Recession Will Get Even Worse If Schumer-Manchin Tax Hikes Are Imposed on Struggling Economy

July 28, 2022

Top Republican on the House Committee on Ways and Means Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX) issued the following statement on Thursday’s Bureau of Economic Analysis report on U.S. economic growth in the second quarter (GDP):

“I don’t know a president who drove an economy faster into the ground—and into a recession—than Joe Biden. This report shows zero percent growth for consumer spending and for home and business investment—the main drivers of economic growth—the weakest since the pandemic recession.


“After Democrats bungled the economy and failed to meet expectations in five of the last six quarters of economic growth, imposing the Schumer-Manchin tax hikes on our economy will only make things worse.”
