Rep. Brady warned against Democrats’ dangerous expansion of the welfare state and special interest bailouts.
“On Thursday and Friday, Ways and Means Democrats approved nearly a trillion dollars in all sorts of welfare state spending. They’re going to introduce more green welfare subsidies tomorrow. And then as we saw, about $3 trillion of tax hikes with little to no notice. We’re all poring through these thousands of pages. They are intent on ramming this to the House just as soon as possible.”
When asked why small businesses will be stuck with the tab of Democrats’ runaway spending, Rep. Brady said:
“This is exactly what we said was coming: an economic surrender. We’re going to lose jobs to China, Russia, Europe, and other countries. They’re going to clean our clock.”
