WASHINGTON – Today, Chairman of the Republican Study Committee Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) slammed the spending spree Democrats are calling the “American Families Plan:”
“The so-called ‘American Families Plan’ is yet another trillion dollar-plus scheme cooked up by the White House to please Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her liberal friends on Capitol Hill that will do the opposite of what it’s purported to do, which is help working families. Instead, like the rest of the Democrat agenda, it will introduce socialism, kill jobs and radically change America.
“This plan would make American families more dependent on Democrats for handouts than ever. And we’ve seen in Biden’s first 100 days that Democrats do not dole out government benefits equally. Rather, they are given to AOC’s pet progressive projects first and American families last.
“This is yet another example of Joe Biden saying one thing and doing another. This plan to pay for his leftwing agenda will be placed squarely on the backs of working men and women.
“If we really want to help working class families, we should reopen the economy now and let Americans work, get kids back to school, stop the Chinese from undermining our economy and end the border crisis.”
