Congressman Blake Moore’s Statement on the Reconciliation Spending Package

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Blake Moore issued the following statement after his vote against the reconciliation spending package:

“As soon as the Senate became a 50/50 split, Democrats committed to trying to spend as much money as possible by abusing the budget reconciliation process. The narrow margins in Congress demonstrate that a radical tax-and-spend agenda is not what the American people want. Instead of rising to this moment for bipartisanship, Democrats have left us with inflated prices that have jumped to their highest levels in 31 years on everyday goods from gas to groceries. These federal spending packages are directly hurting hardworking Utah families. Rather than pushing these massive spending bills, our government needs to focus on tackling the crippling inflation, supply chain, and workforce shortages resulting from liberal policies. I will continue to work with my colleagues on ways we can more responsibly respect Americans’ tax dollars and improve our economic outlook.”
